text-decoration-skip

Syntax

Values

none

Nothing is skipped. Thus, text decoration is drawn for all text content and across atomic inline-level boxes.

objects

The entire margin box of the element is skipped if it is an atomic inline such as an image or inline-block.

spaces

All spacing is skipped: all Unicode white space characters and all word separators, plus any adjacent letter-spacing or word-spacing.

leading-spaces

The same as spaces, except that only leading spaces are skipped.

trailing-spaces

The same as spaces, except that only trailing spaces are skipped.

edges

The start and end of the text decoration is inset slightly (e.g., by half of the line thickness) from the content edge of the decorating box. Thus, adjacent elements receive separate underlines. (This is important in Chinese, where underlining is a form of punctuation.)

box-decoration

The text decoration is skipped over the box's margin, border, and padding areas. This only has an effect on decorations imposed by an ancestor; a decorating box never draws over its own box decoration.

Random CSS Property

unset

The unset CSS keyword resets a property to its inherited value if the property naturally inherits from its parent, and to its initial value if not. In other words, it behaves like the inherit keyword in the first case, when the property is an inherited property, and like the initial keyword in the second case, when the property is a non-inherited property.
