Re: [csswg-drafts] [css-cascade][css-pseudo] How does 'inherit' keyword behave in a child of ::first-line?

That was my expectation as well but actually it looks like not only text nodes inherit from ::first-line, but apparently any inline as well. We have special code to make this work.

You probably have a better idea of what the spec says than me, what do you think is the behavior you expect for http://wptest.center/#/sjfma2 ? 

```css
div { 
	width: 75px; 
	--text-color: green;
}
div::first-line {
	--text-color: red;
	color: var(--text-color);
}
span {
	color: inherit;
	background: currentColor;
	outline: 3px solid var(--text-color);
}
```

Three browsers yield three different results here:
