Second try ... - sorry, wrong setting in my email client.

In such a case there are two possibilities I could think of:

 1. The width is calculated on the basis of a given 'min-font-size' value
    (which defaults to the inherited font-size if not present) - some kind of
    "shrink-to-fit" concept.
 2. The width will always be calculated by the inherited font-size, which means
    that a given value of 'line-fit' for the font-size will be ignored in such

And as I wrote before:"Therefore the element has to have an explicitly given
width (any valid value for width other than 'auto')."
