Hi, Karen

My thoughts are also based on reading section 4.9.4.

I would say that the border does not get rendered. The statement "For a 
child of a viewport-area, the border is not rendered" does not lend itself 
to any other interpretation.

With no scroll, the background gets rendered into the padding area, and this 
lies in the viewport area. That is, outside the content rectangle.
