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

== [css-inline-3] initial-letters-align definition text ==
1. The definition includes "Two sets of alignment points are necessary: the over and under alignment points of the initial letter are matched to corresponding over and under points of the surrounding text."  Despite the repetition of "over and under", the baselines for 'alphabetic', 'ideographic', 'hebrew', and 'hanging' are all listed in the sequence 'under' then 'over'.  Only 'border-box' lists alignment points in the sequence 'over' then 'under'.  It should not be necessary to have to think that much about which baseline means which alignment point.
1. The reference to the ideographic example figure points to the wrong figure.
2. The definitions for alignment points for the initial letter flip-flop between 'over' then 'under' and 'under' then 'over'.
1. The definition for aligning a Hebrew initial letter has some copy-and-paste echoes of the definition for an ideographic initial letter: "ideographic character face bottom and top edge baselines."
