Tiago's CSS quick tip

Did you know you can combine properties?

Some properties as padding, margin, and border have been split. For example, padding has padding-top, padding-right, padding-bottom, and padding-left. If the possibility exists, you should always combine these properties, making it easier to edit and saving you space too:

padding-left:0 ;  padding-top:20px;  padding-bottom:25px;  padding-right:4px;


padding:20px 4px 25px 0;

When the bottom/top values are the same and the left-right values as well, you can optimize it even more:

padding-top:10px;  padding-bottom:10px;  padding-left:0 ;  padding-right:0px;


padding:10px 0;
