Setting the Border Style and Color of a Paragraph
Borders are lines that can be drawn around any or all of the four sides of a paragraph. In terms of the CSS box model, increasing the padding for a paragraph style increases the space between the paragraph and the border.
Not all browsers display border styles the same way. For example, some browsers may not differentiate dotted lines from solid lines. The size and spacing of the dots in a dotted line may also be different between various browsers and operating systems.
To set the border style and color of a paragraph
1. Open your Stationery design project.
2. On the View menu, click Style Designer.
3. In Paragraph Styles, select the style you want to modify.
4. On the Properties tab, click Border.
5. Click the tab for the side of the paragraph you want to display a border, and then specify the color, style, and width for that border. For more information about a property, click Help.
