8.1. Basic Element Boxes

As we discussed in Chapter 7, all document elements generate a rectangular box called the element box, which describes the amount of space that an element occupies in the layout of the document. Therefore, each box influences the position and size of other element boxes. For example, if the first element box in the document is an inch tall, then the next box will begin at least an inch below the top of the document. If the first element box is changed and made to be two inches tall, every following element box will shift downward an inch, and the second element box will begin at least two inches below the top of the document, as shown in Figure 8-1.
