    it's not a border, but what the heck is it called

    i remember seeing a new term (new to me anyway), whether html5 or css3, i don't know, but it was similar to border, but not a border.

    i have googled boundary, edge, border, frame, box nomenclature, and a couple others i have forgotten, and no luck.

    anybody know what i'm trying to remember ?

    outline is CSS 2 and has been around for about 10 years - outlines themselves have been around for at least as long again before there was a way to style them with CSS as that's how you tell what field on the screen has the focus.

    I can't think of anything else that is like a border but not a border other than underline and overline both of which have also been around for a long time.
