Top Margin

Syntax: margin-top: <value>
Possible Values: <length> | <percentage> | auto
Initial Value: 0
Applies to: All elements
Inherited: No

The margin-top property sets the top margin of an element by specifying a length or a percentage. Percentage values refer to the parent element's width. Negative margins are permitted.

For example, the following rule would eliminate the top margin of a document:

BODY { margin-top: 0 }

Note that adjoining vertical margins are collapsed to use the maximum of the margin values.
