The CSS Working Group just discussed `Drop hebrew alignment from initial-letter-align`, and agreed to the following:

* `RESOLVED: remove hebrew value from initial-letter-align`

<details><summary>The full IRC log of that discussion</summary>
&lt;fantasai> Topic: Drop hebrew alignment from initial-letter-align<br>
&lt;fantasai> github: https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/issues/5208<br>
&lt;emilio> fantasai: we have some values handling hebrew in initial-letter-align as a placeholder<br>
&lt;emilio> ... because we don't have metrics for it and a couple other writing systems<br>
&lt;emilio> ... we put it in the spec along with an issue on those lines<br>
&lt;fantasai> https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/issues/5244<br>
&lt;emilio> ... as we're cleaning up the spec I think we should remove the hebrew values and leave the issue about the writing systems not having metrics available<br>
&lt;emilio> ... so that we don't have this value which is not implementable at the moment<br>
&lt;emilio> dauwhe: we tried to reach out to the hebrew community and we couldn't even name the alignment point<br>
&lt;emilio> florian: I'd say let's remove it given we have an issue to having this<br>
&lt;emilio> fantasai: I think it was useful as we explored the space to know where we needed to hook it in, but now it's not so much<br>
&lt;emilio> RESOLVED: remove hebrew value from initial-letter-align<br>
