kojiishi has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts:

== [css-text] Percentage of 'text-indent' against intrinsically sized box? ==
[Percentage of `text-indent`](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-text-3/#valdef-text-indent-percentage) defines:
> Gives the amount of the indent as a percentage of the containing block’s logical width.

A discussion arose what to do when the containing block’s logical width is intrinsically sized.

[Intrinsic sizing in CSS Sizing](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-sizing-3/#intrinsic) defer the definition to CSS2.

[`text-indent` in CSS2](https://drafts.csswg.org/css2/text.html#indentation-prop) does not define either, but [`width` in CSS2](https://drafts.csswg.org/css2/visudet.html#x5) defines it's undefined.

Should `text-indent` follow the same definition as `width`?
