I thought maybe I could control the vertical position of an anchored rule to
a paragraph by changing the baseline offset but it doesn't work with the
anchored rule even though it is treated as a character. I can change the
leading of the paragragh to even out the space before and after the rule but
that only works if the rule is in it's own paragraph.

It would be nice to be able to control where the anchored elements sits in
realation to the character ie. baseline, cap hight. And also be able to
raise or lower the item with baseline offset (baseline shift).
