Figure 8-57. Inline borders and line-box layout

The borders are placed as they are because the border edge of inline elements is controlled by the font-size, not the line-height. In other words, if a SPAN element has a font-size of 12pt and a line-height of 36pt, its content area is 12pt high, and the content area is what will be surrounded with the | F | G | H | I | J | K | L | M | N | O | P | Q | R | S | T | U | V | W | X | Y | Z

Figure 7-58. Uneven padding with background colors

As Figure 7-58 demonstrates, thebackground of an element extends into thepadding. As we discussed before, it also extends to the outer edge ofthe border, but the background has to go through the padding beforeit even gets to the border.

The default value of padding is0 (zero), and padding values cannot be negative.
