Region border not supported

Raised by:

Interoperability with current practice in US captioning has been expressed as a desirable goal, however CEA 708 can specify region borders, but DFXP cannot directly express this.

Add border to the style set for use on regions

Additionally support border on content elements. At present, only defined single tts:border attribute which is shorthand for specifying all borders at once. If it is desired to specify distinct width, style or color in the four border edges, then we need to also add tts:borderWidth, tts:borderStyle, and tts:borderColor attributes.

[glenn]: leave pending to determine which border styles are needed to support 708

[pal]: Mike Dolan: 708 requires: border type (NONE, RAISED, DEPRESSED, UNIFORM, SHADOW_LEFT, SHADOW_RIGHT) and border color

[glenn]: if there are issues around 708 styles, a new issue should be opened with specifics
