Having trouble with setting a double border single border?


In my double border I am wanting to have each line height different. I want the bottom to be thicker than the top. However I am having no luck achieving this. Can anyone help? I also only want it to take up about 80% of the VW, but when i add this in a width property it is not working.

<header> <h1>THE CODE REVIEW</h1> <h2><b>Signup for our newsletter</b></h2> <p>Get the latest news on how your code is doing right in your inbox</p> </header>

header { border-bottom-style: double; border-bottom-color: #339966; border-bottom-width: 80%;

} Secondly I am trying to add a simple border at the top of this div, but it won't allow me. Does anyone know why? Thank you.

Try this in your css:

border-top: 1px solid #339966; border-left: 1px solid #339966;; border-right: 1px solid #339966; border-bottom: 2px solid #339966;

Play around with the px value.
