@bradkemper Yes, currently `display: contents` is not well defined, see #1118 and #1249. I think it might have worked if inheritance skipped elements with `display: contents`, but it doesn't. So there must be some thing which inherits the styles. Tab proposes introducing text boxes that inherit from the parent element, which presumably require rewriting the inline layout algorithm to take them into account. Then, I wonder if 'run of text' would mean 'run of text boxes' or 'run of text nodes in a text box'.
