During an informal spec review of CSS3 Text in Japan, a question was raised about text-align:<string>.

  text-align: ' ' /* a space character */
is specified, should the character-based alignment in a table column[1] run before or after white space processing[2]?

The order of the two processes may make the different results as a space character could be removed during the white space processing.
