CSS Border Width

CSS Border Width

The border-width property specifies the width of the four borders.

The width can be set as a specific size (in px, pt, cm, em, etc) or by using one of the three pre-defined values: thin, medium, or thick:

Example

}

p.three {
  border-style: dotted;
  border-width: 2px;
}

p.four {
  border-style: dotted;

}
