The background of an element is all of the space behind the foreground, out to the edge of the borders; thus, the content box and the padding are all part of an element's background. There are two ways to set the background color: the background-color and background properties.
The example, a grooved border might look better enclosed on each lineend, as shown in Figure 7-55.
It's also acceptable for the lines to be "open" asshown in Figure 7-54.
