Just as for the border-width, the border-color will NOT work unless you also include the border-style FIRST.

One-colored border!

Two-colored border!
Spec order: top & bottom - red; both sides - blue

Three-colored border!
Specs: top - red; both sides - green; bottom - blue

Four-colored border!
Starting at the top, the color specs move in a clockwise direction.
Top - red; right side - green; bottom - blue; left side - purple

The div in the head tag produces what looks like a table with rounded corners and a double border. But I had to use a table tag (with border="0") to get this centered on the screen. Please see the Border Radius tutorial link (below) for more info about this effect.

Remember to include a DOCTYPE tag, such as <!DOCTYPE html>
to start the page, or IE 8 might show peculiar results.
