Bert,

please could you add a comment to this bug:
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=307095

the attachment provided: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/attachment.cgi? 
id=194895
clearly shows that there may be a problem with the wording of the  
specification.**
Otherwise could you please add a comment explaining the reason?

I hope we get to meet up again sometime soon!

thanks again

"Text decorations on inline boxes are drawn across the entire  
element, going
across any descendant elements without paying any attention to their  
presence."

There is one exception mentioned in the paragraph before that but it  
does not
apply here since the <a> has text.

-> INVALID
