Figure 1-4 The numbers grid after the number 5 button has been clicked Summary The best thing about all the selectors discussed in this chapter is that they are supported in all current versions of major browsers! However, you probably know that the phrase “current version” fades into insignificance when it comes to the old enemy—Internet Explorer.

Consider the following question: when you are using the background-position property, where does your background image sit with a value of top left (or 0 0)? It sits at the top left of the padding area, not the border area, so this is why the background image in Figure 3-3 starts at that point. 50 Part I: New Toys Figure 3-3 The example on the left shows that the background image flows into the right and bottom borders but not the top or left borders.
