The Text module defines a 'match-parent' value for 'text-align', which
is equivalent to 'inherit' but resolves logical keywords (start/end)
against the element's parent's direction rather than the element's
direction.  This was added by request after the "Additional
Requirements for Bidi in HTML" workshop.

The workshop also recommended that the default text-align value for
<li> in HTML should be 'match-parent' rather than 'start'.  Is this
acceptable?  If so, we can just recommend that HTML add it to its
default stylesheet.
