Re: [csswg-drafts] [css-inline-3] Initial-letter alignment when 'over-sunk' (#5329)

The CSS Working Group just discussed `initial-letter alignment with overflow:sunk`, and agreed to the following:

* `RESOLVED: When 'over-sunk', an initial-letter is aligned with the top metrics instead.`

&lt;smfr> s/with overflow:sunk/when over-sunk/<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> faceless2: When you have an initial-letter smaller than the space given, how do you align it within that gap?<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> faceless2: Existing spec aligns it to the bottom, elika proposes we change it to the top<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> fantasai: It fixes a use-case I had for indic scripts, and the OP's case which is Latin<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> fantasai: The proposal is to do this when the size is less than the sink value.<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> fantasai: If size is > sink, we want to align to the bottom metric, because we want the top of the letter to be above th eparagraph<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> fantasai: But when size &lt; sink, we align to the top metric so we're pulling up<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> florian: And the initial dfn just only considered one case and we forgot the secon dhalf?<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> fantasai: pretty mcuh<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> Rossen_: Any other opinions?<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> RESOLVED: When 'over-sunk', an initial-letter is aligned with the top metrics instead.<br>
