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

== [css-inline] Draft line-box-contain proposal ==
@dbaron had a proposal called `line-box-contain` for controlling how line box heights are calculated. Some aspects of this feature probably need to be revived if we're going to have baseline-to-baseline distances that aren't wiggly in simple cases like a single-font-size paragraph mixing proportional and monospace text.

Proposed values need to include:

- current behavior value ('normal'? 'legacy'?)
- value that ignores > 1em `line-height` values on anything other than the root inline box (slightly more conservative approach than [dbaron's proposal to only use the root inline](https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/issues/2873)) so that the line box only grows if its contents actually extend outside the outer leading edges of the root inline
- possibly an “absolute” value that does use only the root inline? This can introduce content overlap...
- quirks mode value?
- anything else?
