Right. But that anonymous span's value for a style property which is not inherited must surely be its initial value. Which in this case would be none. We need to amend this Note a) so that it is normative and b) to something like:

For the purpose of determining applicability of this style property, each character child of a p element is considered to be enclosed in an anonymous span where the value of this style property is set to 'inherit'.

See the note that follows the table in 8.2.21:
Note:

For the purpose of determining applicability of this style property, each character child of a p element is considered to be enclosed in an anonymous span.

The same note is repeated on all style properties that apply to the span element (type), e.g., see tts:color.

I noticed something odd about the textOutline property. Its defined as non inheritable, yet it only works on spans. So it doesn't seem possible to make it work on anonymous spans.
