Looks right with Internet Explorer 7/6, Chrome and FireFox 3.6/4.
No borders with Internet Explorer 8/9.

See the attached screenshot.

I cannot test this fix because I cannot install Windows 8. When can I expect Windows 7 support for the platform preview?
This is getting ridiculous.

Thank you for your feedback.

This issue seems to be resolved in Internet Explorer 10 on Windows 8 Developer Preview released on 9/13/2011. Please verify the change and file a new feedback (or reactivate the existing one) if the problem persists.

Best regards,

The Internet Explorer Team

The issue is RTL.
If you switch to LTR, the border are shown.
To work around it, they added an LTR style definition to these boxes and added an RTL style definition to they children.

So, this is a regression.
It works correctly with Internet Explorer 7 and with Internet Explorer 6. Internet Explorer 8 and later get this wrong.

In case the website implements a work around, I attached the page with two of the CSS files that are probably relevant.
(I only changed the HTML within the ZIP file in order to add "IE=9" to the compatibility meta tag and in order to change the URLs of the archived CSSs and made the rest of the URLs absolute.)

Note - you have to switch to Internet Explorer 9 standards mode yourself to see it in action on the actual website.
