Netscape Borders

Borders have their uses in everyday life. For example, borders under a paragraph emulate a horizontal rule (HR).

Now this is a different combination. I originally thought border-top-width, et. al. were a vendor specific extension to CSS. This modified version does use some proprietary markup, to get rid of that pesky pixelish gap between border and background. The problem is…Netscape is broken as designed :-(

The CSS1 Specification, however, uses exactly the same terminology to describe the effect rendered here.(1) See border definitions .

Well, why ever not try a silly border-top-width as well. Pfui.
