Description Bruno de Oliveira Abinader 2013-07-17 03:11:38 UTC
hange description:
The CSS ::cue pseudo-element is defined on WebVTT [1] specification as part of the HTML5 <track> element specification. It has been implemented on  issue 168206  and currently provides support for "text-decoration" property as valid appliance. This issue intends to incrementally add support for the following properties:

- text-decoration-line
- text-decoration-style
- text-decoration-color

These properties are specified on the CSS3 Text Decoration [2] specification and are currently implemented behind a runtime flag (see issue 239225 for details).

I suppose given Mozilla and WebKit and blink have partial support for these, it is fairly likely that these are here to stay.

I don't really see a reason not to add them, since they provide more features for formatting caption/subtitle text.
Comment 3 Bruno de Oliveira Abinader 2013-07-19 17:01:51 UTC
That's good to know, Silvia! So can I expect these to be added to the specification soon? Also worth mentioning about the 'text-decoration' as a shorthand property, as proposed by CSS Level 3 Text Decoration specification, which changes the behavior of current 'text-decoration' implementation.

Saying this, a patch has been proposed for Blink [1], and I'm currently working on backporting it for WebKit.
