the side-offset properties.
There are two other side-offset property values that should be
mentioned here. The first, static-position, causes
the user agent to place the given side of a positioned element where
it would have been if the element had not been positioned. For
example, consider a nonpositioned element whose top edge is 3 ems
from the top of its containing block. If the element is then
positioned and given a top of
static-position, then the top of the positionedvertical-align.)
However, all of this is true only for the top and bottom sides ofinline elements; the left and right sides are a different storyaltogether. We'll start by considering the simple case of asmall inline element within a single line, as depicted in Figure 7-22.

Here, if we set values for the left or right margin, they will bevisible, as Figure 7-23 makes obvious:
