Looks like Webkit defines the properties/values below (based on the tests [1]):

-webkit-line-grid: simple;
-webkit-line-grid: first-grid;

-webkit-line-grid-snap: baseline;
-webkit-line-grid-snap: bounds;

These don't match what I see in the CSS Line Grid draft that Koji
wrote.  It would be interesting to hear what these property values
mean and what the underlying purpose of each is so that we can
consider whether/how to reflect this into the spec.
