           Summary: Ensure that hiliteColor is the innermost style applied
           Product: WebAppsWG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2

See: https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=21679

I'm adding the following fontSize tests:

        ["6", '<span style=background-color:aqua>[foo]</span>'],
        ["6", '<span style=background-color:aqua>foo[bar]baz</span>'],
        ["6", '[foo<span style=background-color:aqua>bar</span>baz]'],

And the following hiliteColor tests:

        '<font size=6>[foo]</font>',
        '<span style=font-size:xx-large>[foo]</span>',
        '<font size=6>foo[bar]baz</font>',
        '<span style=font-size:xx-large>foo[bar]baz</span>',
        '[foo<font size=6>bar</font>baz]',
        '[foo<span style=font-size:xx-large>bar</span>baz]',

In many cases, the highlight is visually not high enough in the markup that the
spec produces.  We get things like <span style="background-color:
teal">foo<font size=6>bar</font>baz</span>, and the background doesn't get
higher to match the increased height of "bar".

I think the correct fix is to change the effective value algorithm so that it
returns a special value like "mixed" if this case is detected.  That way, any
descendants that have this problem will have the algorithm applied to them
again.
