Sets the style of the bottom border of the object.


{ border-bottom-style: sStyle }

Possible values


String that specifies one of the following values:


Default. Border is not drawn, regardless of any border-width.


Border is a dashed line.


Border is a dotted line.


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


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


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


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


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


Border is a solid line.

This property has a default value of none. It is not inherited.


A border-width greater than zero must be set for the border-bottom-style property to render.


The following example uses the border-bottom-style property to specify the border style. This example uses a call to an embedded style sheet to change the style of the bottom border to groove:

    td { border-bottom-style: solid; border-width: 0.3cm; }
    .change { border-bottom-style: groove; }
<table border >
  <td onmouseover="this.className='change'" onmouseout="this.className=''">
    <img src="sphere.jpg">
