      Description

      The text for 20.349 style:shadow has
      <quote>
      The defined values for this attribute are those defined in §7.16.5 of [XSL], except the value inherit.
      </quote>

      But section §7.16.5 is about text shadows, which is 20.219 fo:text-shadow in ODF.
      The attribute style:shadow is explicitly not for text shadows.
      <quote>
      The shadow effect is not applied to the text content of an element, but ...
      </quote>

      The behavior of Word and LibreOffice is similar to the CSS property "box-shadow" https://www.w3.org/TR/2017/CR-css-backgrounds-3-20171017/#the-box-shadow.
      It seems, that even https://www.w3.org/TR/xslfo20/ does not have something similar. Unfortunately CSS 2 has it neither.
