Question

Can content ever spill out of the content area and into the padding?

Answer

Yes it can! For example, say you have a <p> tag containing lots of text. If you set the height of the content area on this <p> box, the text of this element may very well spill out of it’s content area and into it’s padding.

You will learn how to deal with situations like this later in the lesson.
