Sincere apologies for that! you're right. Somehow I must have picked up an older version of the testcase. 
I'm uploading the correct one right now with updated text so it's a bit more clear.

I would have expected that any child elements could override the parent styles, but after doing some further digging, the answer is not quite so clear when it comes to text-decoration.

The spec (http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/text.html#propdef-text-decoration) seems pretty clear on how the inheritance should work - and Webkit does indeed follow it. But it's not so clear if text-decoration can be overridden by a child element.

Firefox seems to allow this override - but they may have a different interpretation of the spec for this scenario.

Came across this new 'text-decoration-skip' property in the draft of CSS3 which seems to address this issue, although I could be wrong: http://www.w3.org/TR/2010/WD-css3-text-20101005/#text-decoration-skip0

You're welcome to close this bug as Invalid until there's a more defined answer. Thanks.
