Am I missing something here?

http://www.w3.org/TR/2003/CR-css3-text-20030514/#text-decoration-shorthand

  "The 'text-underline' property is the shorthand for
  'text-underline-style', 'text-underline-width',
  'text-underline-color', 'text-underline-mode' and
  'text-underline-position'."

...so you should be able to assign a width (although isn't it really
setting the height?). But then below in the actual property
definition, it only lists:

  <'text-underline-style'> || <'text-underline-color'> ||
  <'text-underline-mode'> || <'text-underline-position'>

...in which it appears to miss out width? It's the same with
text-line-through and text-overline.
  
I've been staring at the specification for ages now, so either
something isn't clear or it's not correct. What's going on? :)


Cheers
