    I want to avoid using a “wrapper” just so my code is uber clean (yes I said uber).

    I’ve set my body to be the wrapper (giving it width of 960px and margin 0), but i have a full width background. Would it be good practise to style the HTML attribute to achieve this?

    You can style the HTML tag fine. I would watch out when using your body as a wrapper in IE I think I Remember doing a site a while ago with the same idea, using the body, but in IE it went a little mental… it was a few years ago now, but I would double check when you do it :)


    Thanks for the advice!

    Also, while on the same subject, is it ok to place the ‘footer’ outside of the ‘body’?

    I know you don’t need to define a body in HTML5 but little confused…
