English term or phrase:cross-alignment
A baseline grid helps a designer to achieve cross-alignment between text blocks that use different type sizes. No matter what the type size of the text, they can be arranged and spaced so that they sit on the baseline and so periodically align with text in other type sizes. This is a common way of setting captions, standfirsts and subheads so that they align with the body text.
