The CSS border property delineates an HTML element. By employing specific attributes — such as border-width, border-style, and border-color — you can manipulate the border’s appearance to fit different aesthetic and functional criteria.

Borders enhance the visual distinction between various elements and help establish a clear layout and visual hierarchy. For example, a border can emphasize a specific call-to-action (CTA) button, drawing attention to and encouraging interaction with it.

Borders also offer an additional dimension of customization. Businesses can tailor the style and color of borders to align them with their brand identity, creating a cohesive and consistent website appearance.
