Chapter 9. Adjusting Page Properties > Altering the Page Margins

Altering the Page Margins

By default, browsers include a margin around the content of a web page, just like your word processor does for a printed page. Margins separate the text and images of a page from the borders of the browser window. However, the size of the margins might vary from browser to browser and, what's more, sometimes a design needs specific margin settings to be effective. For these reasons, Contribute allows you to set all four margins—left, right, top, and bottom—for each page through the Page Properties dialog box.

Margins, like many web elements, are measured in pixels. For most systems, a pixel measures the same as a point in printing, 1/72nd of an inch. If no margins are set, browsers use their own margin settings, which range from 10 to 15 pixels. To remove a margin, specify a 0 value.
