Add a 'padding' setting to the DIV.
That was my first thought, but if I'm reading the text right, I think he does need two nested divs.
From inside to outside the sequence goes: content, padding, border, margin. Any visible border is outside the padding (which shares the element's background) and inside the margin (which uses the background of whatever the containing element is).
