I don't think it is. The large C's vertical alignment has no result,
because it's the largest inlinebox within the linebox.

No matter how you valign [1] the large C, the result will always be:
(except when you vertical align the other text "TEXT IS N" and "E" through
making this text appear in inline-boxes in stead of anonymous inline boxes.
The inline-boxes valign-property must also be changed.)
