Definition and Usage
An outline is a line that is drawn around elements (outside the borders) to make the element "stand out".
The outline-color property specifies the color of an outline.
Note: Always declare the outline-style property before the outline-color property. An element must have an outline before you change the color of it.
The outline-color property is supported in all major browsers.
Note: IE8 supports the outline-color property only if a !DOCTYPE is specified.
Tips and Notes
An outline is a line around an element. It is displayed around the margin of the element. However, it is different from the border property.
The outline is not a part of the element's dimensions, therefore the element's width and height properties do not contain the width of the outline.
