CSSWeb DevelopmentFront End Technology

The margin property defines the space around an HTML element. It is possible to use negative values to overlap content. It specifies a shorthand property for setting the margin properties in one declaration.


You can try to run the following code to set margins −

      <p style = "margin: 20px; border:2px solid yellow;">
         All four margins will be 20px
      <p style = "margin: 15px 4% -10px; border:2px solid red;">
         Top margin will be 15px, left and right margin will be 4% of the total width of the document, bottom margin will be -10px
