Description Sam Sneddon [:gsnedders] 2021-08-13 11:29:16 PDT
We are, currently, the only browser shipping support for initial-letter (Firefox has support for it behind a flag, and there's a number of tests in WPT for it without the prefix as a result). Not totally sure what we should do here (we could, in extreme, even put the current prefixed implementation behind a flag depending on how many issues it has and how much use it gets).

In all the many demos I made over the years using `-webkit-initial-letter` (in English), it worked well — except it did not work with web fonts (custom to the website web fonts). It only worked with system fonts.

Ideally this would add animation support for this property in CSSPropertyAnimation. See the many uses of DiscretePropertyWrapper, this will likely be a one-liner.
