I know this is a little late for an answer on this, but I do not know html either except maybe a few things. I use a site called www.auctionlistingresource.com to create borders in different styles and colors. The website generates html code that you put into ebay and the website is free. You can also change the background color if desired. I'm not sure how detailed you are looking for, but thought I'd share the site I use.
