Set an Element's Padding

Padding is the space between the element's content and the element's border. Use the padding property to set an elements padding.

Padding set to 12 pixels

<span style="border-style: solid; border-width: 1px; background-color: #ffff00; padding: 12px;">Padding set to 12 pixels</span>

Use the padding-top property to set just the top padding:

Top padding set to 12 pixels

<span style="border-style: solid; border-width: 1px; background-color: #ffff00; padding-top: 12px;">Top padding set to 12 pixels</span>

Use the padding-right property to set just the right side padding:

Right padding set to 24 pixels

<span style="border-style: solid; border-width: 1px; background-color: #ffff00; padding-right: 24px;">Right padding set to 24 pixels</span>

Use the padding-bottom property to set just the bottom padding:

Bottom padding set to 12 pixels

<span style="border-style: solid; border-width: 1px; background-color: #ffff00; padding-bottom: 12px;">Bottom padding set to 12 pixels</span>

Use the padding-left property to set just the left side padding:

Left padding set to 24 pixels

<span style="border-style: solid; border-width: 1px; background-color: #ffff00; padding-left: 24px;">Left padding set to 24 pixels</span>

Use a shortcut to set the padding for all four sides to different values

padding:10px 20px 5px 25px;

<span style="border-style: solid; border-width: 1px; background-color: #ffff00; padding: 10px 20px 5px 25px;">padding:10px 20px 5px 25px;</span>

Note that the order of values for the shortcut is not the standard left, top, right, bottom. Instead it's: top, right, bottom, left.
