See above. In alt.design, all compounds are
shorthands, and all shorthands are presumed to have been resolved into
their components during FO Tree building.
BTW, does Alt-Design already resolve the cases where *both* a shorthand and one of its included components are specified? I.e., (usually, I believe), disregard the shorthand value for that component and use its explicitly given value instead?
It's in the ordering of the properties. There is a simply for loop to process properties (attributes, in fact) defined on an FO. The order of definition ensures the correct order of evaluation - shorthand first, then any individual properties. The same goes for corresponding properties, when I get around to doing them. Check the order of properties in PropNames.java.
