I have a paragraph that is drop capped and begins with the word 'U.K.' Currently, the CSS (cascading style sheet) standard for Web browsers is to include the period following the 'U' in the drop cap, so 'U.' would be in the larger, dropped font, while 'K.' would appear normal. Is this implementation in line with current grammatical standards, or should the period not be larger and dropped? Alternatively, should the periods be eliminated here altogether?
EDIT: I understand this is a style question and not a 'grammatical' question. Can someone tell me what the MLA style guide would tell one to do in this situation? I know the MLA guide mentions drop caps, so I'm assuming they are considered part of writing style, but if the answer really is that the style is ambiguous, I would appreciate hearing that answer as well.
