Before 57450afb768c085df0ba2344aa94b5f843060178, the background was preserved after the roundtrip but not the body, after this commit, the other way around. I wouldn't consider this a regression though.

The background is a gradient - which is not attempted to be exported to .doc. That would be an enhancement: sw/source/filter/ww8/ww8atr.cxx FormatFillGradient().

(I don't know why the frame border is lost and I haven't looked into it.)

The background is implemented as a shape with a gradient fill background. For some reason, the shape didn't seem to survive a roundtrip.

The border is "shape lines", and of course disappeared when the shape was lost.

The entire document is in a frame. An inventive design, but one highly unlikely to do well moving between different formats.
