I have things to say about text input design. They will be in a video on https://briefs.video soon. Good time to subscribe.
You can use global custom properties in Houdini paint workers by mapping them to initial values.
Here, I'm mapping the global --border-thin (declared on :root) to the registered --cross-width. The thickness of the cross changes with --border-thin, keeping them in sync.
There's no need to use `--cross-width: var(--border-thin)` on the element. It passes the initial value silently. #CSS
