Padding Effect

Padding Effect

Question:
I’m trying to create a padding effect around this box of text that glides on to the screen from the right. I need to have it so that the text doesn’t touch the box edges. I’ve tried paddingLeft and a border, which are applied to style objects, but this doesn’t seem to do anything. Any ideas?

Answer:
The padding usually only applies to table cells. Try using margin or margin-left. Also note that paddingLeft is the scripting equivalent of the CSS padding-left. You may want to try that instead.
