LibreOffice fixed a bug for vertical layout between Latin and Chinese characters (bug 103784), but unhappy with certain fonts.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Input texts in two frames with vertical writing.
2. One frame use the same font for Western Text Font and Asian Text Font, other frame specify a CJK font for Asian Text Font.
If I use same font for Western Text Font and Asian Text Font, then I found Latin text shifts to the left, tested with Linux Libertine G, Linux Bionium G, Liberation fonts and others. If I use western font for Western Text Font and CJK font Asian Text Font, then I proper effect.
Both Latin and CJK texts should get proper text alignments in vertical writing, not be affected by font families.

To fix this bug, I suggest we should get support for icft, icft, ideo, idtp, romn tags of the BASE table firstly, then we try to improve the text alignment.
I also suggest this bug should fixed together with bug 105650 even if the font does not has BASE table.

To get the expected results, we need get the left edge of upright glyphs, then making them aligned with descenders.
