Using CSS, how do you create a color border around an input text box?

I'll post a link to a picture after I save this question.

Thanks much!

Cheers.

I would like to be able to replicate the effect on my input elements.

Thanks

<!-- for the element -->
 
<input class="blue-border" value="username" />
 
<!-- use this CSS -->
 
<style>
  input.blue-border {
    background-color: #fff;
    border-color: #86a3cf
  }
</style>
 
<!-- This uses the exact color from your sample image. -->

Thanks for the code.  Worked first time.

Please pardon my old eyes, but the top and left border appear black to me.  The bottom and right border are the blue color fromthe sample.  Here is a link showing rendering in Firefox and ie6.

Please tell me it is my eyes.

Thanks,
Cheers

Sounds like you want to change the border-style a little bit, too:

input.blue-border {
    background-color: #fff;
    border-color: #86a3cf;
      border-style:solid;
      border-width:1px;
  }

Yes, starfailure's addition should fix the problem.  Thanks for catching that.

kylealanhale and starfailure,
I sent and administrative message to experts-exchange and had them "unaccept" the solution. I did not notice at first that starfailure had answered my follow up question.  I thought it was from kylealanhale. When I accepted the solution, this resulted in starfailure not getting any credit for his work.  I have now accepted both solutions  allocating 70 pts to kylealanhale and 30 to starfailure.  I hope both of you feel the point allocation is equitable.

kylealanhale, when I accepted the solution, I certainly did not mean to not give you any credit for your work.  I apologize to you for my error.  

Thanks again for both of your input!
Cheers.
