I've removed the "inner, resp., outer ...resp." bit. It was added
later, presumably as a clarification, but seems to be more confusing
than anything. The text now reads

   # Backgrounds, but not the border-image, are clipped to the curve.
   # Other effects that clip to the border or padding edge (such as
   # 'overflow') also must clip to the curve.

Let me know if this helps.
