Home Forums CSS Help a newbie out with borders Re: Help a newbie out with borders


I’m not an expert or anything, but it seems to me like there is no room for the borders, because you are using up 100% of the width in your boxes and margins. Keep in mind, browsers ADD the border width to the size of the box, so a 20% box plus 2px border is really 20% plus 4px wide.

Solution: reduce margin width or reduce box width.
