I read, on a CSS web site, recently that the box model consisted of 'content', 'padding', 'border' and 'margin' and that the padding, border and margin could not hold content. So when I'm told it can't be done, I have to find a way......and this is it. This is just text in a div. which has padding, border and margin.
All it takes is just two CSS style settings, one for the div and one for the text in the div. Not sure what use it is though ;o)
Works in all the latest browsers.

I have thought of a use for this method....see Percentage PLUS pixel widths
