FWIW, wpt.fyi solves a very similar problem using just css like:

```css
code:hover {
  width: max-content;
}
```

(See the "Subtest" column in a test with long names like [this](https://wpt.fyi/results/css/cssom/CSSStyleSheet-constructable.html?label=master&label=experimental), and hover over them.

You _can_ probably detect this already via script by setting `width: max-content`, measuring it with an API that gives you fractional values like `getBoundingClientRect()`, then comparing it with the non-min-content measurement.
