Help with rounded corners, please
I created a thin-bordered rounded-corned container by File/New > Select/All > Select/Rounded-Corners > 1px . Select/Border > Bucket -Fill, yet the rounded corners appear(on a web page) to be thicker than the rest of the border. How can I remedy this, so that the border is an even thickness all the way around?

RE: Help with rounded corners, please
When you do a border, the border goes on both sides of the selection. For instance, if you have a 100px circle selection on which you apply a 20px border, you get a 40px wide ring (inner radius: 80px, outer radius: 120px).

In your case, on the sides you only see the inner half since the outer half is automatically clipped. But in the corners you see the full border so it looks twice as big. The proper method wou be to use "Select/shrink" by 10px and then use a "Select/Border" with 10px, that will create a 20px wide border flush with the image side.

Btw, such a simple shape can be done in HTML/CSS:
<div style="width:400px; height:200px; border:20px solid #8888ff; border-radius:40px; -moz-border-radius:40px;">

(and it will also adjust to its contents if you don't set width/height).
