That seems more like a glow or a box-shadow. It's not what I imagined  
for a gradient border. I imagined something that did not ignore the  
direction. You can have a nice bezel effect if, for instance, your  
border gradient does dark to light while your padding box goes light  
to dark at the same angle.
