I also reported this aqua border problem: "Most testers would also
assume that the teal square does not include the aqua belt (thick
border) around the teal square. Or they wouldn't be sure."

I also asked:

1- How does the tester know *_for sure_* that the teal square is
[accurately] half the width of the window?
2- How would the tester know that the teal square is not 53% or not 48%
of the width of the window?

The thing is it could be off by 3 or 4 pixels and no one (except a
machine checking pixels) would know that.
