Steps to reproduce

The standard for the ‘unset’ keyword is to reset a property to its inherited value if it inherits from its parent, and to its initial value if not.

The ‘display’ property is not inherited, however, Edge treats it as inherited when the ‘unset’ keyword is used.

As you can see in the JSFiddle below, Chrome and Firefox correctly treat the red text in the final paragraph as inline; Edge does not as it applies ‘display: table’ from the parent.
