Thanks, Gavin, but your article does not answer on my question.

"Line box" here is a key point.

<p><img style="vertical-align:???" />one<sub>two<sub>three</sub></sub></p>

What ??? value should be to place img in the middle of its line box?

there are two values related to vertical alignment of something in the line
box: 'top' and 'bottom'.
But 'middle' means something completely different.

I guess that in ideal world values should be
text-top, text-bottom, text-middle
top, bottom, middle.
