Updated WD of CSS Inline Layout Level 3

The CSS Working Group has published an updated Working Draft of CSS Inline Layout 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. Changes since the last Working Draft are listed in the Changes section.

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 send feedback by either filing an issue in GitHub (preferable) or sending mail to the (archived) public mailing list www-style@w3.org with the spec code ([css-inline-3]) and your comment topic in the subject line. (Alternatively, you can email one of the editors and ask them to forward your comment.)
