What's in a Name?

When I started building websites, before browsers had nice tools for developers, I found that an easy way to see the underlying structure was to put a thin red border on everything.

The way to do that is to add the following instruction:
* {border: 1px solid red;}
So that's where solid red came from. Why red? Simple; it's the quickest colour to type.

I know you're dying to see what the page looks like with red borders so here you go. Pretty neat, eh?
