I.E. if you were referring to the background of the element which the 
border borders, what you were describing is correct behaviour and
there is no need to fix anything.

You could also propose additions to CSS, which retain the current behaviour,
but also allow an alternative behaviour to be requested.  You need to clearly
define what that alternative behaviour should be, and it would be helpful
if you specified the new attributes or values in as much detail as the
current specification.

If what you want is the background of the containing element to show
through, you will need to explain why the above solution is sufficiently
unsatisfactory to justify the addition of new features (incidentally it
was given in response to  your posting, with no subject, of last week).

If it is something else again, you need to clearly specify what it is.
