The JSSTag.marginBottom property corresponds to the margin-bottom CSS property.

The content of an object is enclosed in a bounding extent rectangle. Around this is placed a padding space controlled by the padding parameters, which expands the bounding - the border is then placed around this. The border width increases the bounding rectangle around the object still further. Last of all the margin is placed around the outside. This forms a rectangle that is used to locate the object adjacent to any other objects or page margins.

The value of this property can be specified as follows:

In addition a keyword can be used:

The auto setting need not be applied to all of the margins, but according to how it is used, some fairly complex margin computation is applied. You should consult one of the standard texts on CSS styles.

This value is not inherited from its parent container element.
