4.0+ 4.0+ 1.0+ 4.0+ 1.0+

Usage

[top] [right] [bottom] [left]

Example

To specify a margin that is 10px wide on the top and left and 5px wide on the bottom and right, use the following syntax: body {margin: 10px 5px 5px 10px;}.

Remarks

Use the margin property as a shortcut to typing out all of the individual margin properties separately. You can specify any valid value for a margin property as part of margin.

You can specify up to four different widths for the margin of an element.

  • For a margin that is the same on all four sides, specify a single value.
  • For a margin that is different on the top/bottom and left/right sides, specify two values with the top/bottom value first.
  • For a margin that is different on the top, left/right, and bottom sides, specify three values with the top value first, followed by the left/right and then bottom values.
  • For a margin with four different widths, specify four values in the order of top, right, bottom, and left.
