ISSUE-222: Computed value of 'box-shadow' if no color is specified

Computed value of 'box-shadow' if no color is specified

(at the end)

Example:

BODY {color: black; box-shadow: 3px 3px}
P {color: blue; box-shadow: inherit}

This inherits as '3px 3px', i.e., the color is not inherited and thus becomes blue. But this is inconsistent with how http://www.w3.org/TR/2011/WD-css3-text-20110901/#text-shadow says that 'text-shadow' is inherited. Shouldn't those two properties be consistent?
