CSS defines when properties are applicable (see the Applies column:

Should we generate warnings when properties are not applicable? For example:

    border-collapse : collapse;

We could warn about the paragraph not being a table or inline-table
element. (I get no warnings with Warnings set to All.)

I'm hoping this will help catch common problems such as trying to
centre inline elements:

    text-align: center;
