HTML Introduction to HTML and CSS Make It Beautiful With CSS Test: Styling by Element and Class

how do I change the paragraph border?

index.html
<!doctype html>
<html>
  <head>
    <link href="styles.css" rel="stylesheet">
  </head>
  <body>

   <p class="main-pg" ></p>
   border: 4px dashed red; {
     } 
  </body>
</html>
styles.css
.main-pg {
 border: 4px wide solid red; 
     } 

1 Answer

.main-pg {
 border: 4px solid red; 
} 

4px is the width of the border, which makes it 4px wide as specified in the task.

If you wanted to change the border using inline CSS, you could do

<p class="main-pg" style="border: 4px solid red">My amazing website</p>
