I18N-ISSUE-401: Clarify botton alignment point [Indic-Layout-Requirements]


Raised by: Addison Phillips
On product: Indic-Layout-Requirements


This point was actually raised by Dave Cramer on the indic list. Creating a tracking issue. His email, linked above, said:

I'm working on the CSS Line Layout specification [1], which covers
drop caps and other initial letter effects. I was very happy to see
examples of this in the Indic Layout Requirements document [2].

Can you clarify the bottom alignment point of the initial letter? The
text mentions the text-after-edge, but the illustrations are not
completely clear to me. Is there something in the font metrics that
would define this?

I've tried to make an example in the CSS Inline spec using a Devangari
font [3]. I expect this figure is incorrect, but advice on how to fix
it would be greatly appreciated!

Kind Regards,
