If the four borders of a box are given different colours the overlaps between them are not coherent - the bottom border is overlapped by both the right border, which spans the full right-hand side of the box, and the left border. The ideal rendering would be that each border receives two pixels, although whether these would go "clockwise" (each border covers the corner to its immediate right) or "anticlockwise" is uncertain and subject to debate.

The fact that the CSS spec does not explicitly define border priority does not help.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Look at the test case provided.
2. Compare to the ideal rendering on the website.
Actual Results:  
"Iffy" rendering as given on the website.

Expected Results:  
Ideal rendering as given on the website.
