Description Adam Roben (:aroben) 2007-06-25 14:29:20 PDT
The computed style section should collapse multiple properties to shorthand properties when applicable. For instance:

margin-bottom: 4px;
margin-left: 0px;
margin-right: 0px;
margin-top: 0px;

could be collapsed to:

margin: 0px 0px 4px 0px;

This depends on bug 13658. This was working to some extent before (sans bug 13658), but I think that support was removed.

This will break the computed style trace implemented by pfeldman@chromium.org. I will defer the decision to him.

Querying shorhands from getComputedStyle now works. Maybe it's time to revisit the problem.

Pavel any thought?

Seems confusing when matching to style-tracing https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=20691
Comment 6 Brian Burg 2014-12-14 19:50:33 PST
On trunk, whether shorthands are used follows the original style rules. This is because we link back to the rules inside the resource.
