"15.2 Alignment the 'text-align' property."....
 .... "This property describes how a paragraph of text is aligned. More
precisely, it specifies how boxes in each line box of a block align width
respect to the line box. (Note that alignment is not with respect to the
viewport but the current containing block.)"

Does this imply that  when text-align is set to justify the flow objects
contained in the parent element (say a <DIV> with its width property set to
40%) should also be stretched border to border?
