HTML Code:

<!DOCTYPE html><!-- Declares the document type as HTML -->
<html><!-- Root element of the HTML document -->
<head><!-- Contains metadata about the HTML document -->
<title>How to set initial property to its default value</title><!-- Sets the title of the HTML document -->
<style type="text/css"> /* Begins a CSS style block */
h1 { /* Defines a CSS rule for h1 elements */
border-style: solid; /* Sets the border style to solid */
border-width: 10px; /* Sets the width of the border to 10 pixels */
border: 10px solid #22CF64; /* Combines the border properties into a shorthand notation, setting a 10 pixel solid border with the color #22CF64 */
border-top-color: initial; /* Sets the color of the top border to its initial value, which is typically the value specified in the user agent stylesheet */
</style><!-- Ends the CSS style block -->
</head><!-- Ends the head section of the HTML document -->
<body><!-- Contains the content of the HTML document -->
<h1>w3resource Tutorial</h1><!-- Displays the text 'w3resource Tutorial' within an h1 element -->
</body><!-- Ends the body section of the HTML document -->
</html><!-- Ends the HTML document -->


  • The HTML document structure includes essential elements such as html, head, title, style, and body.
  • A CSS rule is defined for h1 elements, specifying the border style as solid, the border width as 10 pixels, and setting a solid border with the color #22CF64.
  • The border-top-color property is set to initial, which resets the color of the top border to its default value, typically defined by the user agent stylesheet.
  • The text "w3resource Tutorial" is displayed within an h1 element.
  • No comments were added below the code line as requested.
