2 What is the box model? The term “box model” is often used by people when talking about CSS-based layouts and designs. Any HTML element can be considered a box, and so the box model applies to all HTML and XHTML elements. It is a specification that defines how a box and its attributes relate to each other. The box model tells browsers that a box defined as having a width of 100 pixels and the height of 50 pixels should be drawn 100 pixels wide and 50 pixels tall. What is padding? The padding is the white space that surrounds the box content. Padding clears an area around the content of an element. The padding is affected by the background color of the element. There are four areas of padding which include the top, right, bottom and left however all of the areas can be changed independently using separate properties.
