I have no idea what that would look like. What does 10px bottom 10px  
mean?

Holy Mackeral! My head is going to explode! Who needs that much  
complexity? If I stare at this long enough I see that it starts 10px  
from top, 10px from left, and ends the same distance from the bottom  
right, correct?so why not this instead:

Gradient(top-left / white 14px, black calc(100% - 14px))
