Chapter 5
How to use the CSS box model for spacing, borders, and backgrounds

When you use cascading style sheets (CSS) to format your web pages, the CSS box model lets you control the spacing of elements like headings, text, images, and so on. It also lets you add borders or backgrounds to elements as needed.

So this chapter shows you how to use the box model to create effective web pages, with easy-to-read text. That includes coverage of the CSS3 features that let you round off the corners of borders, add shadows to borders, and provide gradients as backgrounds...without using the images that were required to produce those effects before CSS3.
