      Add the following text to the 2nd paragraph of 20.349 style:shadow:

      The shadow effect is not applied to the text content of an element, but depending on the element where the attribute appears, to a paragraph, a text box, a page body, a header, a footer, a table or a table cell.

      Description

      20.349 style:shadow
      The style:shadow attribute specifies a shadow effect.
      The defined values for this attribute are those defined in ยง7.16.5 of [XSL], except the value inherit.
      The style:shadow attribute is usable with the following elements: <style:graphic-properties> 17.21, <style:header-footer-properties> 17.5, <style:page-layout-properties> 17.2, <style:paragraph-properties> 17.6, <style:table-cell-properties> 17.18 and <style:table-properties> 17.15.
      The values of the style:shadow attribute are none or a value of type string 18.2.

      We see that the defined values for the shadow attribute are in the XSL reference. The reference above to XSL in turn points to
      http://www.w3.org/TR/2001/REC-xsl-20011015
      and to section 7.16.5 "text shadow".

      Issue: Our concern is that this is for CSS text shadows, not border-style shadows. The ODF spec isn't clear about whether this is meant for text in the table or for the table cell, but if it is for the table cell it's twisting the original intention of the CSS spec.
