Re: [csswg-drafts] [css-inline] Line breaks inside drop-caps?

CJK typography uses titles which are typeset fairly similarly to dropcaps, can be long, and can wrap lines. (The alignment is `initial-letters-align: ideographic border-box`.)

![Example of drop heading in Japanese](

Since the sizing of the heading is meant to be an integral number of lines, it feels that this could be achieve by `initial-letter` or something related to it, applied on the title after putting a `display: run-in` on it. And since such titles can wrap and span more lines, it initially made me think we wanted to handle line wrapping on `initial-letter` well enough to cope with that.

However, trying to follow that approach runs into a bunch of difficulties, and I no longer thing that `initial-letter` is the right way to handle this. It seems to me that a combination of `float` and [`block-step`]( is likely to be a more workable approach.

Therefore, I don't think `initial-letter` has to handle this case, and we don't have to worry about it when deciding how line wrapping works.
