You want the dotted peoperty!

Code: Select all

border-right: #000000 1px dotted; border-top: #000000 1px dotted;
border-left: #000000 1px dotted; border-bottom: #000000 1px dotted;

Or, the shorthand for borders on all sides, you could use:

Code: Select all

border: 1px dotted #000000;

This will apply the border to all sides with the same properties. If you require different properties on ANY side, then you'd have to use the aforementioned method.

Be aware that in IE, the "border-style: dotted" actually renders as "border-style: dashed". Most other modern browsers do it correctly.

Speaking of IE... i found a really weird thing...

its not css but still: if you have a GET type form ans post data and on of the variables starts with reg_ then it will conver the "reg" part to a Registered trademark symbol in the address bar and it will lead to your form not workin correctly in IE... however works perfect in Mozilla.. and it never surprised me..

Return to “CSS”
