Property dependencies

This page lists the ways in which the computed value of one property depends on the computed value of another. This is important to track so that we can avoid creating circular dependencies.

color every property taking <color> currentColor (css3-color), initial value of border (CSS21)
font-size every property taking <length> em units (CSS21)
