Updated WD of CSS Text Decoration Level 4

The CSS Working Group has published an updated Working Draft of CSS Text Decoration Level 4. This module contains the features of CSS relating to text decoration, such as underlines, text shadows, and emphasis marks. Level 4 adds additional controls over these decorations, particularly their positions and skipping behaviors.

This update folds in the entire contents of the Level 3 specification (so that it is no longer a delta spec), splits text-decoration-skip into longhands, and makes some additional adjustments to the new features. Changes since the last Working Draft are listed in the Changes section.

A few of these new features (e.g. text-underline-offset and text-decoration-thickness) have already been implemented; others are in rough draft states (most of these are marked as such) and still need some design work. The next draft will hopefully solidify these rough features and shift remaining work more towards refining details.

Please send feedback by either filing an issue in GitHub (preferable) or sending mail to the (archived) public mailing list www-style@w3.org with the spec code ([css-text-decor-4]) and your comment topic in the subject line. (Alternatively, you can email one of the editors and ask them to forward your comment.)h
