Hello, I'd like to remove margin around checkboxes on I.E. I tried to remove it by  class="check"

Inside style sheet
margin: 0px;
border: 0px;
But I could not...

Do you know a better way to remove margin around checkboxes??

Have you tried setting the margin for the checkbox to a negative value?

I wouldnt really advise that but I know no other way.

Add some background color and you'll see it's not margin:

  margin: 0px;
  border: 0px;
  background: red;

It's some sort of padding... but it cannot be removed with "padding: 0;":

  margin: 0px;
  padding: 0px;
  border: 0px;
  background: red;
^----- that does not change anything.

The workaround is to use negative margins:

  margin: 0px;
  border: 0px;

* html .check{
  margin: 0 -2px 0 -3px;
