Ok, I swapped out from using "text-over" (which will be defined in
css3-linebox, but isn't yet) to just using "over" and pointing at
the definition in Writing Modes.

I also reworded things slightly and linked to the definition of
"text-underline-position: left", which is the part that mentions
lines swapping sides in certain vertical modes.

Let me know if that helps. :)
