How i set the color on border by css

Would you please explain to me how we use border at css

<!doctype html>
    <link href="styles.css" rel="stylesheet">

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

  border wide:4px;
  border solid :red;

Hey Rama,

In CSS when you declare the class name it will automatically affect the element with that class name. So you dont need the p {} in your example. You also only need a colon after your property declaration. It would looks like this.

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

All of the border properties can be applied in a single declaration here, and you only need 4px to declare the width not 4px wide.

Hope this helps
