declaration: border: 0.1px solid none. This will have no visual effect, but in the course of telling Navigator to draw a 0.1-pixel, solid, nonexistent border, the background color will usually fill the entire content area and the padding. If you set a visible border, then there will still be a gap between the padding and the border, but otherwise you should get roughly the correct effect.

intersection operation. The area of the element contained within theclip rectangle is displayed, and any partof it outside that rectangle is not. In addition, theclip rectangle is set in relation to the outeredge of the element -- not its content edge. Thus, let's sayyou wanted (for whatever reason) to clip the top 10 pixels of animage:

<IMG SRC="foo.gif" STYLE="clip: rect(10px, auto, auto, 0);">

The auto values will set the clipping

The only drawback to this ability is a small one, but you're bound to run into it eventually. Suppose you want to set the top and left margins for H1 elements to be 10 pixels, and the bottom and right margins to be 20 pixels. In that case, you have to write the following:

H1 {margin: 10px 20px 20px 10px;} /* can't be any shorter */
