Chapter 14. Thinking Inside the Box: (Padding, Borders, and Margins)

In Chapter 11, I introduced the box model as one of the fundamental concepts of CSS. According to the box model, every element in a document generates a box to which properties such as width, height, padding, borders, and margins can be applied. You probably already have a feel for how element boxes work, from adding backgrounds to elements. This chapter covers all the box-related properties. Once we’ve covered the basics, we will be ready to move boxes around in Chapter 15.

We’ll begin with an overview of the components of an element box, then take on the box properties from the inside out: content dimensions, padding, borders, and margins.
