Information

These examples explore what is possible using the box model.

From simple rounded corners to complex borders and even a css only fix for the lack of support for min-width in Internet Explorer.

Please note that in most cases you will need to use a standards compliant doctype to ensure that IE6 correctly renders the box model.
Unfortunately IE5.x will need hacks to compensate for it's incorrect interpretation of the box model.

For a list of standards compliant doctypes see the w3.org website's recommended DTDs to use in your web document.
