The baseline is the horizontal line on which the (latin, greek, cyrillic) letters sit. The baseline will probably be in a different place for different scripts.

(2) In general use, a baseline is any established reference line of known direction and length. Often such a baseline is established in a location close to an area of interest by carefully surveying on the ground.

The baseline is the line drawn by the recording device representing the signal from the detector when only mobile phase is passing through. It also represents the point from which calculations are often made on peaks to determine quantitative data.
the vertical point of origin for all the glyphs rendered on a single line. Roman scripts have a baseline on which the glyphs appear to â€œsit,â€ with occasional descenders below. Many Indic scripts have a â€œhangingâ€ baseline, in which the bulk of the letters are placed below the baseline, with occasional ascenders above the line. Some scripts, such as Chinese, use a centered baseline, where the glyphs are all positioned with their centers on the baseline.

In the United States Public Land Survey System, a baseline is the principal east-west line that divides survey townships between north and south. The baseline meets its corresponding meridian at the point of origin, or initial point, for the land survey. For example, the baseline for Nebraska and Kansas is shared as the border for both states, at the 40th parallel.
In typography and penmanship, the baseline is the line upon which most letters "sit" and under which descenders extend.
A baseline is the line from which the seaward limits of a State's territorial sea and certain other maritime zones of jurisdiction are measured. Normally, a sea baseline follows the low-water line (lowest astronomical tide) of a coastal State. When the coastline is deeply indented, has fringing islands or is highly unstable, straight baselines may be used.
