The JSSTag.paddingBottom property corresponds to the padding-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. The padding expands the bounding. Then the border is 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:

The initial value is set to 0 allowing for no padding value at all.

This value is not inherited from its parent container element.
