Good point and thank you for bringing this to light ... you are correct and 
I was wrong.  The original poster seemed quite impatient with so many 
messages during the day that I found when I returned to my email and I 
jumped to an incorrect conclusion trying to fit his documented evidence 
with what I was reading.

This morning I am not rushed and I just took time to border an absolutely 
positioned block and the border showed up just fine, as you said it would.

I apologize for my misleading comments in the earlier post.

............... Ken
