I found 4 bugs about display specifications.

(1) raise display specification may be affected by height specification.

This form displays two X's on the same height.

(insert "A"
        (propertize "X" 'display '((raise 1) (height 1)))
        (propertize "X" 'display '((raise 1) (height 2))))

But the form below displays second X heigher than first X.
The order in the display property is swapped.

(insert "A"
        (propertize "X" 'display '((height 1) (raise 1)))
        (propertize "X" 'display '((height 2) (raise 1))))

(2) height display specification may not be applied to STRING specification.

This form displays a large string.

(insert (propertize "X" 'display '((height 2) "TEST")))

But the form below displays a normal size string.

(insert (propertize "X" 'display '("TEST" (height 2))))

(3) raise display specification is not applied to STRING specification.

This form displays strings on the base line.

(insert (propertize "X" 'display '((raise 1) "TEST1"))
        (propertize "X" 'display '("TEST2" (raise 1))))

(4) raise display specification may display needless space.

This form displays needless space over A,
as if raise specification is not specified.

(insert "A" (propertize "X" 'display '((raise -1) (height 2))))

I've now clarified the relations between 'raise' and 'height' in the
ELisp manual, and I'm closing this bug.
