            Bug ID: 196312
           Summary: WebKit uses wrong baseline for empty inline-flex
                    containers, when doing `vertical-align:baseline`
           Product: WebKit
           Version: Safari 12
          Hardware: Unspecified
               URL: https://jsfiddle.net/dholbert/y6xef59s/

            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Layout and Rendering

(Note: there's a Blink version of this bug at https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=946669 )

(1) View this fiddle: https://jsfiddle.net/dholbert/y6xef59s/

The four boxes should all look the same, with "abc" aligned consistently at the margin-bottom of the black-bordered area (it should be aligned 10px below the black border).

"abc" is aligned further up, in the second case (for inline-flex). It looks like the bottom of the black-bordered-area's content-box is being used for baseline-alignment, rather than the bottom of its margin-box.

Firefox 66 and Edge 18 both give "expected results"
Safari Safari 12 gives "actual results"
Chrome gives a more-severe version of "actual results" -- they have "abc" misaligned in the 3rd box as well (the inline-grid).

The alignment in play here is `vertical-align:baseline`, which is specced as follows (emphasis added)
 # [...] If the box does not have a baseline,
 # align the **bottom margin edge**
 # with the parent's baseline.

That should apply here, because an empty flex container does not have a baseline, as noted here:

 # [...] if the flex container has at least one item [...]
 # Otherwise, the flex container **has no first/last main-axis baseline set**
 # and one is synthesized if needed according to the rules of its alignment context.
