I did not read the CSS 3 draft so maybe this had already been discussed

I propose a new text-decoration. By now they are almost redundant, 
border-top and bottom being almost able to replace them. Leaving only 
the unused strike-through as an original thing.

My prposal would be a sort of "font border".
Three ideas:
- "hollow fonts" white with a black border. Is it the "engraved" 
effect? I do not remember. And I would particularly like this one: 
wood-like color (a carefully chosen shade of maroon) with a golden 

- inset and outset borders would have obvious use for 
greco-roman/monument look

Actually, I'm not sure text-decoration would be the appropriate 
element. Anyway, as I said before, it is an almost useless element, 
mainly legacy.
