I *think* that what you are seeing is that the CSS Validator is generating  
your CSS with your implied definitions explicitely written.  Since you  
don't give all the definitions for the border, I believe that, by default,  
those that are missing, such as color, are "inherited".  Tantek, Ian or  
one of the other folks from the W3 CSS Workgroup certainly know better  
than I.  You might contact one of them for a definitive answer on this one.

Best,

Carole
