Hello World!


The text-emphasis-position CSS property sets where emphasis marks are drawn. Like ruby text, if there isn't enough room for emphasis marks, the line height is increased.

Note: The text-emphasis-position cannot be set, and therefore are not reset either, using the text-emphasis shorthand property.
