Currently CSS2.1 states:

# It is not, however, further propagated to floating and absolutely
# positioned descendants, nor to the contents of 'inline-table' and
# 'inline-block' descendants.

This would mean that Mozilla (recent nightly), Opera 8 beta 3 and 
Internet Explorer 6 have bugs were they actually have an interoparable 
implementation for floating descendants.

Currently Mozilla, Opera and IE propagate text-decoration to floating 
descendants. Mozilla and Opera do not propagate text-decoration to 
absolutely position descendants, but IE does.

I would like to know if the WG thinks the propagating to floating 
descendants is in error and bugs should be filed for the respective 
browsers or that the text is going to be changed to match 
implementations. (Or at least, two implementations.)

'inline-table' and 'inline-block' are not really supported.
