User an Inner Tube DIV Instead of Padding

Making sure things are cross browser compatible is always a challenge.  But a general rule of thumb is you should just avoid using padding in your CSS.  It’s probably the #1 reason you’ll get cross browser issues.




Avoid using padding in general.  It especially causes issues when you need to set a width in your CSS because you’ll get different results in IE and Firefox.  The better method is to put a div inside a div (called an inner tube) and set margin on the inner div.
