<p id="one">This paragraph of text has padding on the left and right, but not on the top and bottom.</p>

<p id="two">This paragraph has padding, but this time only on the top and bottom.</p>

<p id="three">Be careful when using margins. They don't necessarily apply to the text within the box, but to the box itself.</p>
