Why do we need the width tag in CSS code?

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

I have a noob question. I'm trying to understand the width tag. Why even use the tag if we have padding, margin, and borders? It seems I can make any of my tags resize anyway I want with those 3 tags. I definitely appreciate your response.

Do you mean the CSS width property?

Check out my CSS course where I get into CSS layout, I go into detail how the horizontal space an element takes is affected by margins, padding and borders. 

That said, with CSS Grid and flexbox, this becomes a non issue but for older browsers, you still need to understand this. Makes sense?
