The CSS WG has published an updated Working Draft of the CSS Inline Layout Module Level 3:


This module describes the css features relating to inline box layout
in the block-axis dimension, particularly vertical alignment within
a line and initial letter styling (drop caps, etc.).

This update includes a pile of improvements to the specification for
initial letter styling as well as the outline of a property to control
the height of the background/border areas of an inline box.
Significant changes since the last WD are listed at:

There are still a lot of open issues, including more precise definition
of the initial letters' layout model as well as several property/value
naming issues. The CSSWG welcomes feedback on these issues and on the
draft in general.

Please review the draft, and send any comments to this mailing list,
<www-style@w3.org>, prefixed with [css-inline-3] (as I did on this
message) or (preferably) file them in the GitHub repository at

For the CSS WG,
