My first posting, I found this ML via Gmane, but did not a FAQ. Hope
this is the place to ask such questions:

   In LaTeX it is possible to typeset the text content of its
   enclosing "box" aligned to the top or bottom of the box. Is such
   control possible using CSS also, or is the space between an
   individual letter and the top and bottom of its "box" (visible if a
   border is drawn with padding equal to 0px) unmanageable (I.e., tied
   to the line-height)? If so, then I suppose this will be one of the
   next steps to take in the improvement of rendering engines?

Many thanks in advance,
