Summary

The text-decoration-style CSS property defines the style of the lines specified by {{ cssxref("text-decoration-line") }}. The style applies to all lines, there is no way to define different style for each of the line defined by text-decoration-line.

If the specified decoration has a specific semantic meaning, like a line-through line meaning that some text has been deleted, authors are encouraged to denote this meaning using an HTML tag, like {{ HTMLElement("del") }} or {{ HTMLElement("s") }}. As browsers can disabled styling in some cases, the semantic meaning won't disappear in such a situation.
