In section 17.6.3 of the CSS2 spec [1], it is stated that, in the
collapsing borders model, inset should be treated as groove and outset
should be treated as ridge.  This seems to me to be reversed.  If the
cells are to appear inset, then the collapsed border between them
should be a ridge, and if the cells are to appear outset, the collapsed
border between them should be a groove.  Is this an error or should it
be this way?
