[csswg-drafts] Support for shearing of lines and inline elements

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

== Support for shearing of lines and inline elements ==
Japanese subtitles commonly use shearing of text, as illustrated below.

Not sheared:




Couple of observations:

* while shearing might not be appropriate for books, it is commonly used for subtitles

* shearing is not applied to individual characters, but instead to complete blocks -- each of the digits in 1998 is not sheared individually

* the shear angle is author-specified

* it should be possible to shear individual lines as well as groups of lines

CSS Transforms Module Level 1 `skewX()` and `skewY()` can be applied to blocks but neither to lines nor inline elements
