Dave,

Examples 3 and 4 [1] show initial letters that are raised above the top of
the paragraph. Itıs not mentioned how that paragraph relates to the
paragraph above. My assumption is that the relation between the top of the
initial letter and the previous paragraph does not change. So the effect
of changing initial-letter from 3 to '2 3' is just that the rest of
paragraph after the initial letter shifts down one line.

If that's correct, then it should probably be mentioned in the spec. Iıve
just had a conversation about whether the raised cap would collide with
the previous paragraph (my own temporary insanity) or if the letter might
exclude lines in the previous paragraph.

Thanks,

Alan
