For the trace of Besov spaces Bp,qsB^s_{p,q} onto a hyperplane, the borderline case with s=np(n1)s = \frac {n}{p} – (n–1) and 0<p<10 < p < 1 is analysed and a new dependence on the sum-exponent qq is found. Through examples the restriction operator defined for ss down to 1p\frac {1}{p}, and valued in LpL_p, is shown to be distinctly different and, moreover, unsuitable for elliptic boundary problems. All boundedness properties (both new and previously known) are found to be easy consequences of a simple mixed-norm estimate, which also yields continuity with respect to the normal coordinate. The surjectivity for the classical borderline s=1p(1p<)s = \frac {1}{p} (1 ≤ p < \infty) is given a simpler proof for all q]20,1]q \in ]20, 1], using only basic functional analysis. The new borderline results are based on corresponding convergence criteria for series with spectral conditions.
