Re: [csswg-drafts] [css-inline] initial-letter should be clearer about how it sinks

I'm OK with the behavior exhibited by Safari. The idea was to try to 
avoid dependencies on the details of what's going on in the lines 
adjacent to the initial-letter (or on the window width). In 
particular, we didn't want cycling if some large inline would increase
 the size of the initial letter, and thus push the large inline to a 
different line, decreasing the size of the initial letter...

We also want initial letters with the same specs in the same document 
to be the same size, even if there was a badly-designed superscript or
 something in an adjacent line some of the time.
