Hi.
I know that this could be also achieved using the RGBA notation on the  
border-color property, but I think that this property would be really  
useful for designers. In short, it should accept the same single- 
property names of the border-radius property (border-top-opacity,  
etc.) plus the numeric values used in the opacity property. Example:

input {
   border: 1px solid #aaa;
   border-radius: 3px;
   border-opacity: 0.5;
}

Using this property makes life easier to designers and allows them to  
achieve the same results previously obtained from graphics. (that is,  
the effect of a border that looks thiner by adjusting the opacity of  
the border lines).

Hope I wouldn't be misunderstood.

Regards,

Gabriele Romanato
