HTML-CSS: Tips of the Day

Why is a div with "display: table-cell;" not affected by margin?

Consider using the border-spacing property instead.

Note it should be applied to a parent element with a display:table layout and border-collapse:separate.



<div class="table">
    <div class="row">
        <div class="cell">123</div>
        <div class="cell">456</div>
        <div class="cell">879</div>


.table {display:table;border-collapse:separate;border-spacing:5px;}
.row {display:table-row;}
.cell {display:table-cell;padding:5px;border:1px solid black;}
