I agree with you; a computer software would state/claim there are 2 lines.

How would you write/clarify the pass/fail sentence then?

How about:
"
Test passes if there is an orange line below, underneath the words  
LINE A and if there is an orange line below, underneath LINE B. Test  
fails if there are any orange lines under, inside, above, or on the  
dotted blue box.
"

Would that be okay?

I think you're right. I have added  [RC6] text-decoration-089 in the list
of Incorrect RC6 testcases
http://wiki.csswg.org/test/css2.1/issues?&#incorrect-rc6-testcases
along with a link to your email.


This, it seems, was also the same issue also for

[RC4]
http://test.csswg.org/suites/css2.1/20110111/html4/text-decoration-087.htm
