Text-decoration and IMG

Hi all,

On http://www.meyerweb.com/eric/css/tests/css2/sec16-03-01.htm I read:

  "Text decorations only apply to the text of an element, so the image
  at the end of this sentence should not be overlined: [img].  The
  underline of the parent element should hold true beneath the image,
  however, since text-decoration 'spans' child elements."   

Doesn't the spec simply mean to say that IMG can not have
text-decoration, so the second part of the paragraph above is

The CSS2 spec says on text-decoration [1]:
  "If the property is specified for a block-level element, it affects
  all inline-level descendants of the element. If it is specified for
  (or affects) an inline-level element, it affects all boxes generated
  by the element.  If the element has no content or no text content
  (e.g., the IMG element in HTML), user agents must ignore this
