Adjusting the Space Around a Page

You can adjust the white space around a page by adjusting the margin and the padding. In terms of the CSS box model, modifying the padding property adjusts the space inside the border area. For example, if you create a border or background color for a page and you increase the size of the padding, the border moves away from the content in the page.

Modifying the margin properties adjusts the space outside the border area. For example, if you create a border or background color for a page and you increase the size of the margins around the page, the border remains the same distance from the content in the page. However, the position of the content changes because the space outside the border increases.
