Hmm, k.  I'll think on it a bit.

If it's omitted, it's covered by a different paragraph (there's one
paragraph for each of the four provided/omitted possibilities, as the
intuitive defaults change):

> If the <angle> is omitted in the first argument, the <bg-position> specifies the starting-point of the gradient-line. The ending-point is obtained by rotating the starting-point 180 degrees around the center of the box. For example, specifying "right" would place the starting-point in the center of the right edge of the box (as described by Backgrounds and Borders) and the ending-point in the center of the left edge, producing a horizontal gradient that went from right to left. Specifying "top left" would place the starting-point in the top-left corner of the box, and the ending-point in the bottom-right corner of the box, and would produce a diagonal gradient. Specifying "left 10px" would place the starting-point at the left edge, 10px from the top and the ending-point on the right edge, 10px from the bottom - if you would like a horizontal gradient that start 10px in from the left edge, specify "10px center" or "left 10px center". Refer to the Backgrounds and Borders Module for more examples.
