Re: [csswg-drafts] [css-ui] outline-width and "outline-style: auto" (#4925)

The CSS Working Group just discussed `outline-width vs outline-style: auto`, and agreed to the following:

* `RESOLVED: outline-width may be ignored if outline-style is auto`

<details><summary>The full IRC log of that discussion</summary>
&lt;fantasai> Topic: outline-width vs outline-style: auto<br>
&lt;Rossen_> github:<br>
&lt;fantasai> florian: outline-style: auto is what you do when you want to opt into native-style outlines<br>
&lt;fantasai> florian: some UAs may do a solid outline, but try to do native<br>
&lt;fantasai> florian: UA might ignore the outline-color in that case<br>
&lt;fantasai> florian: but doesn't say you can ignore outline-width<br>
&lt;fantasai> florian: Maybe we should allow UA to also ignore outline-width in that case<br>
&lt;fantasai> smfr: In webkit we definitely support this, don't want outline-width affecting native appearance<br>
&lt;fantasai> +1 from fantasai<br>
&lt;fantasai> florian: Amelia thought the native outline looked bad and wanted to say outline-width to make it thicker<br>
&lt;fantasai> florian: so alternative would be if you can't affect the outline-width on a native outline, the existence of outline-width cuases a non-native outline<br>
&lt;fantasai> florian: Personally I think if you want to style it, then don't use a native<br>
&lt;fantasai> florian: If it's native, every other property is a hint, might influence rendering but not necessarily<br>
&lt;fantasai> Rossen_: Magic of having something like outline-width switching out of native one is really magic to me<br>
&lt;fantasai> Rossen_: This sounds like a broken feature<br>
&lt;fantasai> Rossen_: so either require to apply, or make optional, but don't switch out<br>
&lt;fantasai> florian: Proposed resolution, just like outline-color, outline-width may be ignored when outline-style is auto<br>
&lt;tantek> +1<br>
&lt;fantasai> RESOLVED: outline-width may be ignored if outline-style is auto<br>
