CSS2 Section 8.5.4 Example

The last example in CSS2 section 8.5.4 is somewhat misleading, I think,
because no border-style is set.  This contributes to the view of the
people who are making Netscape's test suite that border-style does not
need to be set to produce a border.  (Fortunately NGLayout does not
exhibit this behavior, but it does have the empty padding bug and the
default border-width is wrong.)
