1 The Importance of the CSS Box Model Block Element, Border, Padding and Margin Margin is on the outside of block elements and padding is on the inside. Use margin to separate the block from things outside it, padding moves the contents away from the edges of the block. The difference becomes clear once you apply backgrounds and borders to an element. Unlike padding, margins are not covered by either the background or border because they are the space outside of the actual element. Remember that when you use padding, padding adds to the containers width/height. See example below: Margin and padding values are set clockwise, starting from the top. Page 1

2 Practical example: Here is an <h2> heading between two paragraphs. As you can see, the margin creates white space between the paragraphs, and the padding (where you see the background gray color) gives it some breathing room. Margin and Padding Values In the above example of the heading, the values for the margin and padding would be: margin: 15px 0 15px 0; padding: 15px 15px 15px 15px; To optimize this line of code further, using shorthand cuts down on repetitive code. Applying the shorthand technique would slim the code down to this: margin: 15px 0; /*--top and bottom = 15px right and left = 0 --*/ padding: 15px; /*--top, right, bottom and left = 15px --*/ Here is what the complete CSS would look like for this heading: h2 { background: #f0f0f0; border: 1px solid #ddd; margin: 15px 0; padding: 15px; Padding makes things grow Keep in mind that padding adds to the total width of your element. For example, if you had specified that the element should be 100 pixels wide, and you had a left and right padding of 10 pixels, then you would end up with 120 pixels in total. 100px (content) + 10px (left padding) + 10px (right padding) = 120px (total width of element) Margin, however, expands the box model but does not directly affect the element itself. This tip is especially handy when lining up columns in a layout! Page 2

3 2. Refresher About Floats Floats are a fundamental element in building CSS-based websites and can be used to align images and build layouts and columns. If you recall how to align elements left and right in HTML, floating works in a similar way. The float property specifies whether a fixed-width box should float, shifting it to the right or left, with surrounding content flowing around it. The float: left value aligns elements to the left and can also be used as a solid container to create layouts and columns. Let s look at a practical situation in which you can use float: left. The float: right value would align elements right, with surrounding elements flowing to the left. Page 3

4 Quick tip: Because block elements typically span 100% of their parent container s width, floating an element to the right knocks it down to the next line. This also applies to plain text that runs next to it because the floated element cannot squeeze in the same line. You can correct this issue in one of two ways: 1. Reverse the order of the HTML markup so that you call the floated element first, and the neighboring element second. 2. Specify an exact width for the neighboring element so that when the two elements sit side by side, their combined width is less than or equal to the width of their parent container. Page 4

5 Internet Explorer 6 (IE6) has been known to double a floated element s margin. So, what you originally specified as a 5-pixel margin becomes 10 pixels in IE6. A simple trick to get around this bug is to add display: inline to your floated element, like so:.floated_element { float: left; width: 200px; margin: 5px; display: inline; /*--IE6 workaround--*/ 3. Refresher on Alignment The days of using the <center> HTML tag are long gone. Let s look at the various ways of centeraligning an element. Horizontal Alignment You can horizontally align text elements using the text-align property. This is quite simple to do, but keep in mind when center-aligning inline elements that you must add display: block. This allows the browser to determine the boundaries on which to base its alignment of your element..center { text-align: center; display: block; /*--For inline elements only--*/ To horizontally align non-textual elements, use the margin property. If both margin-left and margin-right are auto, their used values are equal. This horizontally centers the element with respect to the edges of the containing block. Horizontal alignment can be achieved, then, by setting the left and right margins to auto. This is an ideal method of horizontally aligning non-text-based elements; for example, layouts and images. But when center-aligning a layout or element without a specified width, you must specify a width in order for this to work. To center-align a layout: Page 5

6 .layout_container { margin: 0 auto; width: 960px; To center-align an image (image with a class of center): img.center { margin: 0 auto; display: block; /*--Since IMG is an inline element--*/ Vertical Alignment You can vertically align text-based elements using the line-height property, which specifies the amount of vertical space between lines of text. This is ideal for vertically aligning headings and other text-based elements. Simply match the line-height with the height of the element. h1 { font-size: 3em; height: 100px; line-height: 100px; To vertically align non-textual elements, use absolute positioning. The trick with this technique is that you must specify the exact height and width of the centered element. With the position: absolute property, an element is positioned according to its base position (0,0: the top-left corner). In the image below, the red point indicates the 0,0 base of the element, before a negative margin is applied. By applying negative top and left margins, we can now perfectly align this element both vertically and horizontally. Page 6

7 Here is the complete CSS for horizontal and vertical alignment:.vertical { width: 600px; /*--Specify Width--*/ height: 300px; /*--Specify Height--*/ position: absolute; /*--Set positioning to absolute--*/ top: 50%; /*--Set top coordinate to 50%--*/ left: 50%; /*--Set left coordinate to 50%--*/ margin: -150px px; /*--Set negative top/left margin--*/ Page 7
