Tutorial 2 - Floating an image and caption

Step 8 - Add a border to the image

To add a border to the image, you can use a Decendant Selector rule. The image and caption are inside the div so they are decendants of the div. This means you can target the image with a rule "div img". The problem with this rule is that it will target any image inside any div.

To be more specific, we can narrow down the selection by using "div.floatright img { border: 1px solid #ddd; }". This will target any image inside a div that is styled with a "floatright" class.

As the image has a border of 1px on either side, the width of the div should be changed from 100px to 102px (100px image, 1px left margin, 1px right margin = 102px).
