Opera 6.1
More Margin Questions...

 5:04 pm on May 9, 2002 (gmt 0)


My pages validate at the W3C, but for some reason it won't read my 0px margins.
Is there a workaround for this behavior?

I just checked mine, and 0px margins work fine for me.

I have my margins defined in a css, so I call the class in the body tag.

Are you doing 0px on the top only or where are you using the 0px?

Double check your padding. There is a mild disagreement (even in the css community), as to what browsers should default too. Usually, you can set the padding to overcome the mild differences in interpretation between nn/ie/opera.

body {
margin: 0px;
padding: 0px;

Setting body { padding: 0px; margin: 0px; } was key for Opera.

Actually, the root of all my other problems in Opera were due to not setting both the padding and margin properties simultaneously.
