Home Forums CSS [Solved] Is a wrapper really necessary? Reply To: Is a wrapper really necessary?


by “WRAPPER” if you mean page level wrapper I agree you can add width, margin, css etc on BODY tag…

but for any other sub-sections or callouts or panes in the page… I think you cannot easily manage all their contents/children individually.
So, group them and play with them…

but many things have a wrapper-less solution.

I believe there are only a few … like add width, margin, css etc on BODY tag

I submit that they do the opposite. They create clutter.

I agree only if you are referring to meaningless or redundant mark up in HTML

If there’s “no other way,” fine; but you should be looking for another way.

I didn’t mean “no other way,” there are ways which end up in extra CSS when you have different no of different elements to accommodate in a section…
