border that you want.
5 In the Style list, click the type of line that you want.
6 In the Color and Width drop-down lists, choose the desired color
and line width.
7 If you want more than one side but not a complete box border, click
the buttons around the preview to turn them off or on.
8 Click the Shading tab.
9 In the Fill box, select the desired color.

TIP If you selected less than a complete paragraph in step 1,
you can choose Text or Paragraph in the Apply To drop-down
list in the Borders And Shading dialog box. When you choose Text, the
borders and shading affect only the selected part of the paragraph.
