Hi, David,

| You can't disambiguate width and offset

I mean either  'width' can be given either  'width' *and* 'offset' together.
(probably I was wrong with notation initially)

Another option is to use
'width' ['/' 'offset' ] as in case with font size and line height in 'font'

My assumption is simple: 'offset' without 'width' makes no real sense.
