Examples

The following example uses the padding-bottom property to change the padding of the object. This example uses the TD element as a selector in an embedded style sheet to set the top padding for all table cells to 1 centimeter:

<style>
    td { padding-bottom: 1cm; }
</style>

This example uses inline scripting to set the top padding of the cell to 1 centimeter when an onmouseover event occurs:

<td onmouseover="this.style.paddingTop='1cm'" onmouseout="this.style.paddingTop=''">
    <img src="sphere.jpg">
</td>
