While developing a design for my website and validating the CSS, I 
found that negative values aren't allowed for the padding attribute.  
Why not?  It's the only way I see to bring the borders closer to or 
overlapping the content they contain.  Is there some rationale to this? 
  Negatives seem fine for margins.  Just wondering.
