The :first-line pseudo-element is similar to an inline-level element, but
with certain restrictions. Only the following properties apply to a
:first-line pseudo-element: font properties, color properties, background
properties, 'word-spacing', 'letter-spacing', 'text-decoration',
'vertical-align', 'text-transform', 'line-height', 'text-shadow', and
'clear'.
</blockquote>

This is a grave error. Vertical-align can have no effect since :first-line
selects a line box, and line boxes are stacked without separation.
