Only when you purposely overlap things.  Normally, the first thing in
your HTML document is the first (topmost) thing in the page, the next
goes below that in the page, etc.

I'm just talking about expectations here, not precise technical
meaning.  People expect the first thing in the list (whatever the list
is) to be the first thing they see (whatever it means to be seen
first).  That's why 'background' was designed the way it is when we
added multiple layers to the syntax.
