text-decoration-skip-ink

The text-decoration-skip-ink CSS property specifies how overlines and underlines are drawn when they pass over glyph ascenders and descenders.

text-decoration-skip-ink is not part of the text-decoration shorthand.

Syntax

/* Single keyword */
text-decoration-skip-ink: none;
text-decoration-skip-ink: auto;
text-decoration-skip-ink: all;

/* Global keywords */
text-decoration-skip: inherit;
text-decoration-skip: initial;
text-decoration-skip: unset;

Values

none
Underlines and overlines are drawn across the full length of the text content, including parts that cross over glyph descenders and ascenders.
auto
The default — the browser may interrupt underlines and overlines so that they do not touch or closely approach a glyph. That is, they are interrupted where they would otherwise cross over a glyph.
all
The browser must interrupt underlines and overlines so that they do not touch or closely approach a glyph. This can be helpful with certain Chinese, Japanese, or Korean (CJK) fonts, where the auto behavior might not create interruptions.
