Zero Margin and Zero Padding for the Whole Page vs in the Body

Recommended Posts

Dear All:

In a W3school's tutorial is this tip:

Tip: When aligning elements with position, always define margin and padding for the <body> element. This is to avoid visual differences in different browsers.

 

Do we still need to do this if we have already declared the margin and padding for the whole page, e.g. *{margin: 0; padding:0;} and why?

Since the body element is one of the elements that the * selector targets, you don't need to put it on the body.
