Subject:  Re: Styling standardization status

Hi Julee et al,

I worked on it a bit more and made sure it works in every CSS
transforms-supporting browser and is accessible in browsers that don¡¯t
support CSS transforms.

However, there is a small bug in Firefox [1] when thick borders are combined
with transforms, which makes it look like this:

I¡¯ve tried a lot, but can¡¯t seem to come up with a solution. Do you think I
should deploy regardless or does it look too bad?

Cheers,
Lea
