I’m attempting to make a content box with a semi-transparent border. The background for the box is white, which seems to be giving me trouble. Here is the code I’m working with, which seems to work perfectly fine when the background for such a box is not white.
@dtrick By default the background of an element also sits behind the border. @TheDoc has wisely suggested using the background-clip property to contain the background to the element and its padding only.
