What would be an adequate replacement of the text assert in such case?

Which of the following would be okay with you:

When computed value of 'white-space' is 'pre', then 'text-align', if set
to 'justify', must be treated as the initial value.

When computed value of 'white-space' is 'pre', then the white space of
an element's text can not be altered by specifying 'text-align:

When computed value of 'white-space' is 'pre', then the used value of
'text-align', if set to 'justify', is set to its initial value.

We may have to add a test to verify that this (computed value is still
intact in such situation) actually happens too.
