Following today's CSS WG discussion of the goals for rewrite of line layout in CSS Inline, I put into the public Archive a document that has photos of various signs found in Gujurat, India. These all illustrate the alignment of mixed glyph sizes. Since painted signs are not (typically) constrained by tool limitations, they often show what the users want/expect. The quick summary is that alignment to the Hanging, Center and Alphabetic baselines is used.
