A negative margin will push the border away from the center of the control, and a positive margin will move the border closer to the center of the control.

Non-integral values for margin values are technically permitted, but should typically be avoided.

HighVisibility and Reveal focus visuals are rendered with an outer (primary) and inner (secondary) border.
