Hi,

The CSS 2.1 specification defines the actual value of a property as the
value used in a particular environment (as a mechanism to deal with the
(dis)abilities of a particular environment). 

In 16.2 (text-align), it says 'If the computed value of text-align is
'justify' while the computed value of white-space is 'pre' or
'pre-line', the actual value of text-align is set to the initial
value.'. 

Shouldn't this read '...the used value of text-align is set to the
initial value.', since this issue is not related to the target
environment?

If you have any further questions, do not hesitate to contact me. 
 

Best Regards,
Robert Stam
