- Dual transparency and CSS3 borders

I've tried to search the lists for this, and even asked at www-style
but I seem not to find anything and they didn't answer.
This is about the borders in CSS3.
Let's say I'm trying to draw a star-shaped border, a la "Greatest
where the border is visually no more than an broken line. Something
(it's supposed to be a broken line /\/\/\ with $'s above it
representing a mostly white pattern background, and #'s below it
representing a yellow pattern background)
Let's say "outside content" has a background-image: url('pattern1.png')
and "inside content" has a background-image: url('pattern2.png'). How
authors be able to specify that the lower part of the border
by "#"-- will use the background from pattern2.png and the upper part
the border --indicated by "$"-- will use the background from
Painting those patterns in the border-image does not help, as nothing
assure that there will be a smooth transition from the background in
content to the "background" painted in the border-image.
I don't know if I explained correctly my question.

How will you be able to test that at all? Web browsers don't support CSS3,
(which is just a specification) let alone CSS2, which is partially supported
and often buggy (Internet Explorer in particular despite it ubiquity). Is it
just curiosity that leads you to asking that question?
Whether it's possible or not, the specifications will tell. How this will be
rendered is a spearate matter, which is not affected by the syntax. It could
be as simple as specifying multiple image URL's, which is nothing out of the
It's confusing and very hypothetical.
