Dear WSS ..

I have read that the width and height of an object does not include the
padding and border. If I am wrong then please cease reading.

I really really really think that the width or height of an object
should include the padding , at least.

Here's why!!

If an item should be 100% (PERCENT) wide but the padding on the right
side should always be 200px (PIXELS) ... ??? Tell how can this be done?

This is a very common need but it is impossible to do this unless the
padding is considered to be an internal and included part of the object.
This is probably true for the border also!
