NO, thin is as small as it gets.

Can I get away with fractional points or pixels?  (ex. 0.5px or 0.5pt?)

border-width:1px; is the smallest possible one

Unfortunately a you can't get smaller than a single pixel.  A good technique to sort of imply a thinner line is to use a lighter color.  If you want a really thin black border, then use a 1px grey border.

border: 1px solid #999;
