[howto] Is The W3C Box Model Wrong?

It’s been discussed elsewhere and whilst I do show you how to it’s more of an “I find this useful, maybe you will too”. I actually find myself supporting Microsoft on this one which feels very strange indeed. ;)

No it’s not wrong, it’s just different. The only time the W3C CSS box model falls down is when actual widths are declared, and to solve that we have the box-sizing CSS rule.

I know that Phil. Did you read the article or just the title of this post?

That’s an excellent text Stuart. I’m also one of those who are not keen of Microsoft products but I also thought that that the w3 box model was not the most logical one and secretly wished for ie to win the particular battle.

Thanks Yiannis. At least there is a way around it.
