Padding and divs, basic question

Sent by Scott Haneda on 20 September 2005 22:10


If I have a div that is set to 120px wide, and I want to drop some text into
it, and have that text a few pixels in from the border of the div, is there
some way to do it without messing with the 120px side of things:

..foo {
    width: 120px;
    border: 1px solid red;
}


<div class="foo">
Something
</div>

So that's just fine, but the "Something" is butted right up on the red
border, I want it in somewhat, but then it changes the width if I use margin
or padding, and I am betting various browsers deal with this in different
ways.
