CanFortify units get their fortify defence bonus automatically when in cities,
regardless of what they're doing. I somehow hadn't twigged that this was tied
to the CanFortify flag; it became apparent when reviewing patch #3672.

The built-in help has this to say on the subject:

In individual unit help:

  * May fortify, granting a 50% defensive bonus.

Could helpfully point out that this happens automatically in cities.

In helpdata.txt, section "Combat" ("Default Combat Rules"):

 - If the defender is a land unit, and is either fortified or inside a city,
its strength is multiplied by 1.5.

All of this text is flagged as being for the default ruleset, so it's more
excusable here.
