There's no difference between a rounded border and a square one.

   <div>
    <p> mowmow </p>
   </div>

   div { border: solid; height: 2em; width: 2em; }
   p { margin: -0.5em; }

It's overflow. The 'overflow' property decides how overflow is rendered.
The 'overflow-clip' property will decide exactly how the overflow is
clipped if it is clipped ('overflow: hidden').
