Creating the guarantee style
Let's get started by making a few small changes to the style of the guarantee
paragraph just to get a feel for how the paragraph's box is set up. To do that,
you're going to add the paragraph to a class called guarantee so that you can
create some custom styles for just this paragraph. You're then going to add a
border along with a little background color, which will let you see exactly how
the paragraph is a box. Then we'll get to work on the rest of the style. Here's
what you need to do:
Open your “lounge.html” file and locate the paragraph that starts
“Our guarantee”. Add a class attribute “guarantee” to the element like this:
Add the class att ribute with a value of “gu arantee”.
Rem ember, a clas s will allow yo u to style th is paragraph
inde pendently of the other pa ragraphs.

to add a border and background color to the guarantee paragraph. Add
the following CSS to the bottom of your stylesheet and then save.
