Web Development Basics for the ASP.NET Developer – What is Box Model?

All document elements (visible) generate an element box which describes the amount of space that element occupies in the layout of the document. As per the CSS specification the box consists of the element’s content area, padding, border and margin.

The margin is always transparent and reflects the containing block’s background properties, whereas the content and padding reflect the element’s background properties. The border assumes the foreground properties of the element unless explicitly specified.
