Well according to FOP's compliance page, vertical-align isnt even supported.


I will make a note to update the compliance page to say it works for
PDF. I believe baseline-shift also works for PDF.

As for the Postscript renderer, it is not as mature as the PDF Renderer
and so it is no surprise that sub/super scripts arent implemented there.
