Why does the property "vertical-align" only apply for
a ":first-line" pseudo element when "float" is "none"?
When the first letter is rendered as a float it should
be possible to fine-tune its vertical alignment, which
depends on the font. If you want the height of the
first letter to occupy exactly three lines, for example,
you also want to align it properly to those lines.
