Nav box improvements

Recommended Posts

After great effort, too much effort, not enough result, several years ago I managed to get a basic page working.  Now I am trying to put a border around the navigation box and set its background color.  I have tried a few tutorial sites but they seem to leave a few things out and I cannot get it working.

The full web page is here  https://us-path-forward.com/presidential_pardon.htm

 The lead in code section with the nav bar is below,( with a few changes from my edit attempts).  How must this be changed to implement a border and background color around the navigation box.

Thanks for the reply, but I don't see where to put what.  Here is my attempt and it just displays this:

CSS p.solid {border-style: solid;}

 

<nav>

    <a href="/css/">CSS</a>
    p.solid {border-style: solid;}
<ul class="navbar">
  <li><a href="https://us-path-forward.com/resistance_to_change.htm">Resistance to Change</a>
    <li><a href="https://us-path-forward.com/amendments.htm">Constitutional Amemdments</a>
  <li><a href="https://us-path-forward.com/citizens_united.htm">Citizens United</a>
  <li><a href="https://us-path-forward.com/presidential_pardon.htm">Presidential Pardon</a>
  <li><a href="https://us-path-forward.com/site_index.htm">Site Index</a>
    </ul>
</nav>
