Issue 1: On several of the visual examples of dotted emphasis, the dot placement is too close to the base text.



The emboxes of the base text and dotted emphasis glyphs should touch and not overlap. The size of the dotted glyphs' emboxes are normally 50% of those of the base text, although sometimes further scaling of glyphs is necessary for larger dots.

Issue 2: For ruby plus dotted emphasis, I do not think the dots would be set as in the example: https://www.w3.org/TR/css-text-decor-3/images/text-emphasis-ruby.png


I think they all would be moved up, similar to the stipulation for underline of text of varying sizes in https://www.w3.org/TR/css-text-decor-3/images/underline-single.png


Please verify with other experts as to this edge case.

Issue 3: In Japanese newspaper decoration, there is a form of overline (right side in vertical) used in obituaries, similar to the "accounting underline" shown in https://www.w3.org/TR/css-text-decor-3/images/underline-position-under.png




Its placement is different from normal overline (set more outside the line, not touching the embox) and is thicker than overline. Perhaps inclusion of an example like this could be useful?
