Because I wanted "slight" anti-aliasing to be the default, and I was 
thinking that adding anti-aliasing pixels to a one pixel-width border would 
kind of double the width while anti-aliasing a two pixel-width border would 
increase the width by only 1/3, which would blend with the straight, 
un-anti-aliased part better.

I guess you're referring to my Style Confirmation Descriptors. I think that 
thread is compact enough to not tire anyone, except for my first couple of 
posts which I apparently should have explained better. The CSS version of 
the idea seems dead and burried now. Something similar could be achieved 
through scripting, by programmatically taking and analysing a screen shot. 
Maybe I'll work on it some day, but it really belongs in CSS (and HTML).
