Step 2 ) In the following step I will add a border around the div tags we have created so far #header, #leftmenu, #mainbody, #rightsidebar and #footer except #wrapper. In this example I am adding a 1px solid border around the div tag.

Important: If you decide to add different width values to your design make sure you ajust the width accordingly.

Note: The CSS code added below will be an addition to the already existing CSS code added previously to each div tag.

Add the following css style code:

#header{
border-style: solid;
border-width: 1px;
}

#leftmenu{
border-style: solid;
border-width: 1px;
}

#mainbody{
border-style: solid;
border-width: 1px;
}

#rightsidebar{
border-style: solid;
border-width: 1px;
}

#footer{
border-style: solid;
border-width: 1px;
}

Step 3 ) The following image illustrates the increase in the width because of the 1px border added above. That means the overall width has to be increased to compensate for the extra pixels.

Increase the width value for the following div tags. Current width is 990px, after the new increase the width value will be 994px.

#header{
width: 994px;
}

#footer{
width: 994px;
}

Step 4 ) The following image shows you the final result so far viewed from a browser.

Note: The borders are even all around the template.
