Figure 8-21. The background-clip property controls the extent of the background
Background images appear in front of the background color. So, the image hides the color if you add a
background color to the <div> elements in background-clip.html. However, when background-clip is set to
content-box , the padding inherits the background color of the parent element rather than the color set on the
element itself.
In background-clip_bg.html, the dark red background color of the <div> is hidden, but the light gray
background of the <body> shows through the padding between the text and the border. Even in glorious
monochrome, you should be able to see the padding and <body> are the same shade in Figure 8-22 .
