Hi all :)

As suggested by Ojan, I am writing a mail to you about my intention to
implement all updated and missing text-decoration* properties from
CSS3 spec (currently in development), named below:

-webkit-text-decoration ( https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=92000 )
CSS3 dev spec: http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css3-text/#text-decoration
Mozilla ref: https://developer.mozilla.org/en/CSS/text-decoration
Status: Proposed patch / pending review

-webkit-text-decoration-line ( https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=90959 )
CSS3 dev spec: http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css3-text/#text-decoration-line
Mozilla ref: https://developer.mozilla.org/en/CSS/text-decoration-line
Status: Proposed patch / pending review

-webkit-text-decoration-style ( https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=90958 )
CSS3 dev spec: http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css3-text/#text-decoration-style
Mozilla ref: https://developer.mozilla.org/en/CSS/text-decoration-style
Status: Proposed patch / pending review

-webkit-text-decoration-color ( https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=91638 )
CSS3 dev spec: http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css3-text/#text-decoration-color
Mozilla ref: https://developer.mozilla.org/en/CSS/text-decoration-color
Status: Proposed patch / pending review

-webkit-text-decoration-skip ( https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=92801 )
CSS3 dev spec: http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css3-text/#text-decoration-skip
Status: Work in progress

As each patch touches similar places and sometimes requires previous
work, this patch series requires the patches to be reviewed / commited
in the same order as described above ( 92000, 90959, 90958, 91638 and
92801 ).
The decision to use "-webkit-" prefix was suggested by Alexis on
https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=90959#c13 . There is also a
suggestion to use a specific flag to enable this feature at compile
time, however other CSS3 properties such as text-emphasis, for
example, do not use such flags, so I am a bit uncertain about it

I am really looking forward for comments and review on the proposed patches :)

Best regards,

Bruno de Oliveira Abinader
