Description

We need two borders to create all the widgets that have been designed for 
mozilla.  We had planned to use border and outline to provide the correct look, 
but the decision to not support outline has left us with only one border.  Every 
chrome widget needs to show two borders for multiple states such as hover, 
active, and focus.  Some type of style that can be added to our css files to give 
us this extra border is required.  Possibly used in a way similar to -moz-border-
radius, but in this case it would need to be something like:
-moz-special-border: 1px solid black;
and:
-moz-special-border-top: white;
-moz-special-border-bottom: #666666;
-moz-special-border-left: white;
-moz-special-border-right: #666666;

Nominating this beta 1 as we need this urgent replacement for CSS2 outlines
which as we learned just last week will not materialize for Seamonkey, as
determined by RickG, RodS and the Gecko team.
We need this to build hover and focus feedback on widgets and in other places as
well. The ability to do propoer widget feedback as spec'd in the UI hinges on
this capability.

Hangas, I am assign this back to you to kill because this was something we were 
trying to get into beta1 for focus. Now with XBL widget I think this is invalid.

Fixed by Hyatt when he created XBL widgets that support multiple tags all having 
their own borders.

Netscape's standard compliance QA team reorganised itself once again, so taking 
remaining non-tables style bugs. Sorry about the spam. I tried to get this done 
directly at the database level, but apparently that is "not easy because of the 
shadow db", "plus it screws up the audit trail", so no can do...
