in standards mode behavior defined in E.2?
"any underlining affecting the text of the element, in tree order of the 
elements applying the underlining"

it's unclean for me why text-decoration from invisible ancestor not 
affected element:
"The color(s) required for the text decoration must be derived from the 
'color' property value of the element on which 'text-decoration' is set."
nothing is said about ignoring this rule on visibility.

quirk mode obvious.
