 | Border backgrounds are not specified by border properties.
 |  Change the last paragraph of 8.1 to: 
 | 
 |   The background style of the content, padding, and border
 |   areas of a box is specified by the 'background' property
 |   of the generating element. Margin backgrounds are always
 |   transparent.

I interpret this to mean that the border is painted over
the background.

If so, it conflicts with Section 14.2 and 17.5.1's figure.
If not, it conflicts with Section 8.5.3.

(The original wording seems to reinforce Section 14.2
 rather than Section 8.5.3.)
