The problem is that the Inline LM doesn't calculate the dimension of the

Line LM. Instead it just assumes the dimension of the line as given to
it in the LayoutContext.
However, to be able to do the required calculations the Inline LM would
need access to the KnuthElements of the subsequence it is suppose to
construct the area for. However, what's given to it is a sequence of
KnuthPositions (the standard addAreas() interface) not elements.
Maybe there is no need for the InlineLM to know the elements, or for the
LineLM to compute the height of each inline: the LeafNodeLM (and its
subclasses) already set their areas bpd according to the font ascender
So, InlineLM.addAreas() could check the bpd of its inline children after
adding them, and choose the larger one, which could be smaller than the
Or am I missing something important?
