This text has a pink background, a thin, blue left border and a thick purple bottom border.  CSS lets you specify lots of things if you want.

This page was made to look this way by putting the following between the <head> and </head> tags:

<style type="text/css">
  p {
    border-width:        thin ; 
    width:               70% ; 
    margin-left:         20% ; 
    background:          pink ; 
    padding:             2em ; 
    border-left:         solid ;
    border-right:        none ;
    border-top:          none ;
    border-bottom:       solid ;
    border-left-width:   thin ;
    border-bottom-width: thick ;
    border-left-color:   blue ;
    border-bottom-color: purple ;
    font-size:           200% ;
