Install firebug for firefox, right click the boxes/posts in question, and use the "inspect element" tool. You can see the selectors for the elements. Add a `border` property for those selectors in custom code > custom css.

I understand, via CSS and the Custom option, how to construct a border or outline around a paragraph. What I do not understand is how to make the border or outline around the entire box or post .. ie... I get a series of boxes (around each paragraph) rather than one large box or outline around all the paragraphs. Can you suggest what I should do.

Hi Chuck, You should be able to use the "post" class. Something like this:

.post{border:1px solid #dddddd;}

Kate .. ok, so that worked pretty nicely! So two things I have to figure out .. 1. how do you make this work for pages other than posts .. ie.. the feature page or the highlight page?, and 2. the reply block of the post falls well outside of the border .. any idea on how I address that?

Hi Chuck, For pages, you could try:

.page{border:1px solid #dddddd;}
Also: are you saying you want a border around the comments too? That would be something like:
#comments{border:1px solid #dddddd;}
