CSS - Block Level (element|box)


Block-level refers to the (HTML) elements that are formatted visually as blocks.

See for more information: CSS - Block Box Layout

Except for table boxes, and replaced elements, a block-level box can also be a block container box (A container for other boxes).

The “block-level” category roughly corresponds to the element of the category of flow content without the phrasing content elements (hum, hum)
