| For example, table-column-group elements cannot have borders around 
| them, so the border properties must be ignored.

As table-column-group can have borders around them in collapsed border 
model¹, this is not good example.

Better example might be: table-column elements can't affect to font of 
column, so the font properties must be ignored.

| The following properties apply to column and column-group elements:
| 'border'
| The various border properties apply to columns only if 'border-collapse' 
| is set to 'collapse' on the table element.
