Re: [csswg-drafts] [css-inline] textBottom property (#4582)

> It is just about to make vertical-align: baseline stronger

Unfortunately, not exactly. It would require significant revision of the way how CSS controls the vertical position of the glyphs ([which might be rather counter-intuitive](, I admit).

To some extent, for the single-line text, the example from the initial post seems to be achievable by setting the line-height to zero (to make both above-baseline and below-baseline parts of the text "stick out" from the container) and adding an inline-block placeholder pseudo-element to push the baseline down by the needed length ([example](

That said. this issue shows another example of authors' common need to access and control the exact geometric position of the rendered text and is likely related to #4792.
