Do the rules and rectangles overlap?  If not, I don't see any reason
to change the order in which they are displayed.

To find this out one could create a table with two rows, one with the
colored boxes and one without them.  If you zoom in and the vertical
rules have the same width in both rows, then they don't overlap.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
