Chapter 8. Space Around Boxes > Margins and the Margin Properties

Margins and the Margin Properties

One of the most common ways to specify spacing in your document is to adjust the margins. A margin is the space between the element’s bounding box and the bounding box of any adjacent element. There are five margin properties; four let you set the margins for the left, right, top, and bottom margins individually or in any combination: margin-left, margin-right, margin-top, and margin-bottom.

The fifth one – margin – is a shortcut by which you can set all four margins in one step.
