region should have the same size and location as the element'scontent area. The other possibility is to define a clipping shapethat is relative to the element's content area. This does notalter the shape of the content area, but instead alters the area inwhich content may be rendered.

space to appear within the line, they can move content over. This maycause a line to break at a different spot than it ordinarily wouldhave.

Turn to Figure 7-25 to see what happens when aninline element with a margin is displayed across multiple lines:

B {margin: 10px; background: silver;}

Figure 7-25. An inline element displayed across two lines of text with a 10-pixel margin

The left margin is applied to the beginning of the element, and therelative with no offsets. Thus:

P.contain {position: relative;}

Consider the example in Figure 9-19. It shows twoparagraphs that contain identical text. However, the first paragraphcontains an inline boldface element, and the second an absolutelypositioned boldface element. In the second paragraph, the styles usedwould be something like what is shown here:

P {position: relative;}   /* establish containing blocks */width, below which a block-level element's
width cannot drop. The value of this minimum can
vary between browsers, as it is not defined in the specification.
