Thank you Adam and others for responding to my question. I wasn't as clear
as I should have been. I do understand the box model and what the
differences are between padding and margins. I was wondering if there were
some rules of thumb for which is better to use when it doesn't make any
difference visually (no background, or background is set in a higher level
box, and no border). I suppose that thinking about possible future
redefinition of the style sheet or which is quirkier would influence choices.

Are collapsing margins quirks or features? Where can I read about them?
Also, can anyone point me to a good tutorial on Doctypes, please?
