remain are the details of what happens when absolute positioning isinvoked.

When an element is positioned absolutely, it is completely removedfrom the document flow. It is then positioned with respect to itscontaining block, and its edges are placed using the side-offsetproperties. The positioned element does not flow around the contentof other elements, nor does their content flow around the positionedelement. This implies that an absolutely positioned element mayoverlap other elements, or be overlapped by them. (We'll see padding:0px; margin:0px; } body { background-color: #e1ddd9; font-size: 12px; font-family: Verdana, Arial, SunSans-Regular, Sans-Serif; color:#564b47; padding:0px 20px; margin:0px; } #content { border:1px solid #564b47; background-color:#fff; }


H1 element. In Figure 7-6, thisis represented using dashed lines which are included for illustrativepurposes. These lines would not actually appear in a web browser.

margin can accept any length measure, whether inpixels, inches, millimeters, or ems. However, the default value formargin is effectively 0 (zero),which means that if you don't declare a value, then by default,there won't be a margin.

possible. A higher position is preferred to one that is further tothe right or left.

Again, this rule is subject to restrictions introduced in thepreceding rules. There are similar caveats here as in Rule 8,although they are not quite so fuzzy. As you can see from Figure 8-38, it is pretty easy to tell when an element hasgone as far as possible to the right or left.

Furthermore, even assuming that the background image is initially visible, it always scrolls with the document. Perhaps you don't want to see what Figure 6-54 depicts:

Doing this has two immediate effects, as we can see from Figure 6-55. The first is that the background does not scroll along with the document. The second is that the position of the image is determined by the viewing area, not the document size.serifs may be altered in an italic face. Oblique text, on the otherhand, is simply a slanted version of the normal, upright text. Fontfaces with labels like Italic, Cursive,and Kursivare usually mapped to the italic keyword, whileoblique can be assigned faces with labels such asOblique, Slanted,

4.1.1.3. Handling whitespace

For a change of pace, let's talk about the property white-space, which can greatly impact how text is actually displayed.

Using this property, you can affect how browser treats the whitespace
