Looks pretty good. I'd suggest three things:
   - use black text for the instructions, not green
   - assert somewhere that there must be no red
   - if you can think of a way to avoid obscuring the instructions with the
     test lines in the fourth test, that would be good. :)

"inheritance" isn't quite the right word here, because text-decoration doesn't
inherit in the CSS sense of the word. I'm not sure what to use instead.. maybe
text-decoration-descend, and e.g. "text-decoration should not affect absolutely-
or fixed-positioned descendants"?
