A series of CSS3 text decoration properties implementations are
currently on the works. These adds new properties which specifications
are not finished yet, thus subject to changes. In order to avoid early
web exposure, a new setting (aka. runtime flag) is going to be added:
css3TextDecoration. As discussed with Julien, this flag provides
easier maintenance than adding a whole new compile flag (as seen in
https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=93863 ).

This new runtime flag comes disabled by default and is going to affect
parsing of the following CSS3 text-decoration properties:

-webkit-text-decoration-line ( https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=90959 )
-webkit-text-decoration-style ( https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=90958 )
-webkit-text-decoration-color ( https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=91638 )
-webkit-text-decoration-skip ( https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=92801 )
And finally CSS3 specification support for text-decoration (
https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=92000 )

The bug related to this implementation is
https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=93966 .

Any comments will be kindly appreciated!
