8. At this point in time, leave the Summary field empty.  Although Cascade will flag it as an accessibility error, you can ignore that warning.  Best practices for accessibility currently say to leave the Summary blank.

9. Select a colour for your border if you are using this feature.  In the example, the colour purple, #660099 is used.
