How do I get my border elements solid? I have it in there but it's not working, so I must be missing something.

in my style.css I am having trouble making my border elements solid. It keeps rejecting it. I have changed a couple things but still I'm not getting it.

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

    <p class="main-pg">My amazing website</p>

  </body>
</html>
styles.css
.main-pg {
   margin: 0;
   padding: 0;
   text-align: center; 
   border: wide solid;
   border-radius: 4px; 
   color: red;

}

The problem isn't with solid, but I don't think "wide" is a valid keyword for the width.

Perhaps you meant "thick"?
