dauwhe has just created a new issue for 
https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts:

== [css-inline] should initial-letter-wrap have an `auto` value? ==
See [issue 13](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-inline/#issue-75123a85) in
 the spec. Right now we have

```
inital-letter-wrap (none | first | all | grid | <length> | 
<percentage>)
```

`none` doesn't do any wrapping, and `all` wraps every line to be close
 to the shape of the initial letter. `first` just wraps the first 
line, but acts like `none` if there's a space after the initial 
letter. This is because you don't want to close up the word space if 
the para starts like "A screaming comes across the sky."

Should we rename `first` to `auto`, and add a `first` that always 
applies, whether or not there is a space after the initial letter? I 
don't immediately see a typographic situation where this would be 
useful.
