Closed, InvalidPublic1 Estimated Story Points

Description

Background

Currently, as of Codex v1.3.6, we have a misconception in our docs on icon usage within Links.
While the specifications already point out that there is only one specific icon put end of Link description

“Link with icon” features

as end icon and in normal size, which is against design agreements and common practice.

Goal

Clarify Link with Icon usage with correct use cases.

[design/codex@main] Link: Return to `x-small` rendering for :after icons

https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/1023808

Turns out the change to rems was the origin of the wrongly rendered icon.

I'm closing this task as invalid because there are no clear acceptance criteria attached and we (the DST engineers) are somewhat confused about what actually needs to be done at this point.

Please file a new task with clear acceptance criteria about what specific changes are necessary and we can pick this up next sprint.

Change #1023808 abandoned by Eric Gardner:

[design/codex@main] Link: Use 12px icon for links.

Reason:

Abandoning this patch because the acceptance criteria are not clear and it's becoming confusing. Feel free to file a new task with clearly-specified ACs and we can work on this next sprint.
