2.1.78 [CSS-Level2-2009] Section 16.4, Letter and word spacing: the 'letter-spacing' and 'word-spacing' properties

V0154:

The specification states:

 'letter-spacing' 
  
 Value:                 normal | <length> | inherit
 Initial:               normal
 Applies to:            all elements  
 Inherited:             yes  
 Percentages:           N/A  
 Media:                 visual  
 Computed value:        'normal' or absolute length

Quirks Mode and IE7 Mode (All Versions)

The inherit value of the letter-spacing property is not supported.

V0155:

The specification states:

 Word spacing algorithms are user agent-dependent. Word spacing is also influenced 
 by justification (see the 'text-align' property). Word spacing affects each space 
 (U+0020) and non-breaking space (U+00A0), left in the text after the white space 
 processing rules have been applied. The effect of the property on other word-
 separator characters is undefined. However general punctuation, characters with 
 zero advance width (such as the zero with space U+200B) and fixed-width spaces 
 (such as U+3000 and U+2000 through U+200A) are not affected.

Quirks Mode and IE7 Mode (All Versions)

Ideographic spaces are increased with word-spacing even though they should be excluded.
