CSS border-left-width Property Value

The value of this property is any relative (except for percentage) or absolute units that are supported in CSS.

Also, we can use these values as well:

  • medium: this value will set the width of a border to a medium size.
  • thin: this value sets the width of a border to a thin size.
  • thick: this value sets the width of a border to a thick size.

Also, the two global values “initial” and “inherit” could be used as well.
