Ian, what does this mean:
"the "one" does not become the first line"?

And more: Am I right in my understanding that:

text-decoration is inheritable by pure (in-flow) block 
elements and it is not inheritable by inline blocks ?

So here:
content of all cells in the table will be underlined and
<strike><table style="display:inline-table">...</table>
will be not.

And another question is:
<input> - is it "naturally" inline or inline-block element?
The same question but for <textarea>,<select> and <object>.

Andrew Fedoniouk.
