How to set initial property to its default value

w3resource Tutorial

The border-radius property allows adding rounded corners to elements.


  • This HTML document demonstrates how to set the border-radius property back to its default value using the initial keyword.
  • The div element is styled with a solid border that has a thickness of 3 pixels and a color of #FF0000 (red).
  • Padding is set to 10 pixels at the top and bottom and 40 pixels on the left and right sides of the div.
  • The background color of the div is set to #00CCCC (light blue).
  • The width of the div is set to 150 pixels.
  • The border-radius property is set to initial, which resets it to its default value, eliminating any previously applied rounded corners.
  • As a result, the div appears with sharp corners, as the border-radius property is reset to its default value.
