8.2. Margins

The separation between most normal-flow elements occurs because of element margins. Setting a margin creates extra "blank space" around an element. "Blank space" generally refers to an area in which other elements cannot also exist and in which the parent element's background is visible. For example, Figure 8-4 shows the difference between two paragraphs without any margins, and the same two paragraphs with some margins.
