Long description for punctuation and drop cap example
This diagram illustrates a drop cap layout using
the :first-letter pseudo-class. However, unlike the previous
diagram, the text begins with punctuation.
There are 5 lines of text. The first line begins with a
large double quote mark (") followed by a
large, italic capital "A" that spans three lines. The rest of the text
flows around the '"A': the first three lines lie to its right
and the last two below it (aligned with the left
side of the double quote mark).
In the following PRE element layout, the space occupied
by the "A" in the second and third lines is represented
by underscores (_):
" A bird in
__ the hand
___ is worth
two in the bush,"
says an old proverb.
