Percentages: refer to combined line height size as provided by drop-initial-value
Media: visual
Computed value: specified values (except for initial and inherit)

Syntax

drop-initial-size : auto | <line> | <length> | <percentage> ;

Values

The drop initial letter is sized using the length value.
<percentage>
The drop initial letter is sized relatively to the combined line height of the n lines determined by the 'drop-initial-value' property value.
