HTML Border Syntax

h1 { border: 100px 0px 1000px 0px; }

What's wrong with this code?

I'm just trying to made the header (amply big, space around it). I realize the questions is a snapshot of my code, so what could be possible problems?

Hi, I think you're confusing borders with margins or padding. When setting a border you only choose one number ie.

border: 2px solid black;

Otherwise you might be meaning to set a margin or padding?

Probably... I'm still new to this.

Thanks, and yeah I'll try that.
