Border is a dotted line.

dashed (dashed)

Border is a dashed line.

solid (solid)

Border is a solid line.

double (double)

Border is a double line drawn on top of the background of the object. The sum of the two single lines and the space between equals the IHTMLStyle::borderWidth value. The border width must be at least 3 pixels wide to draw a double border.

groove (groove)

3-D groove is drawn in colors based on the value.

ridge (ridge)

3-D ridge is drawn in colors based on the value.

inset (inset)

3-D inset is drawn in colors based on the value.

outset (outset)

3-D outset is drawn in colors based on the value.
