As, we know every tag or element in HTML is occupied some space because it acts as a container in webpage.

And with the help of some attributes of html, we just have to make border creative and visible to others. Also, we can customize our border of an element by giving its width and height.

<!DOCTYPE html>
      <html>
        <head>
          <title> Title of the document<title>
        </head>
          <body>
	<p style="width:300px; height:50px; background-color: black; color: white; box-sizing: border-box;">
        A box can be made around a paragraph
    </p>
    <h1 style="width:1000px;height:100px; background-color:red">
        We can also able to make a box in heading tags
    </h1>
    <div style="width: 700px; height: 70px; background-color: aqua; color: darkgray; border: 1px solid black;">
        
    </div>
          </body>
      </html>
  1. First, we write <! DOCTYPE html> which we used as an instruction to the web browser about what version of HTML file is written in.
  2. Secondly, the <html> tag is used to indicate the beginning of an HTML document.
  3. As above now <head> tag is used to contain information about web page. In this tag a <title> tag is used which helps us to specify a webpage title. Both <head> and <title> tags are Paired tags. So, both have </head> and </title> ending tags respectively.
  4. Thirdly, <body> tag is used to define the webpage body. All the contents to show on website are written here. Here, we create three different tags they are paragraph, heading and division.
  5. Mostly all of them have same properties like width, height which are mandatory to make a box, and other like border, background color, etc. are optional tags, if you don’t use these tag then box is also made. Whereas the background color is only here to show you that a box is created in website.
  6. You can also place text inside these boxes like paragraph and heading tags. Or if you wish to make an empty box, you can see codes of division tag.
  7. At last, the <body> and <html> tags are closed with </body> and </html> respectively.

Conclusion :-

In conclusion, we can say that a box can be created around any text used in any tag. We have only to give height and width only to tag and have to use background color and border property to show that a box is created here.
