I'm new user in LaTeX, and I would like to know which is the better code to do a colored squared round box with text in a page?

I would like to show important notes for example.

Best Regards.

A small example...



\begin{tcolorbox}[width=\textwidth,colback={green},title={With rounded corners},colbacktitle=yellow,coltitle=blue]



\begin{tcolorbox}[width=\textwidth,colback={red},title={With true corners},outer arc=0mm,colupper=white]
