Border style for different browsers

Hello, i noticed that border of a div are calculated differently in different browsers: in IE the boder is calculated from within the width of the div, while in Firefox the border is added outside the div and so does not interfere in the caliculation. Is there any style property that specifies whether the border is in or out the container?

Unfortunatly, nothing to specify if the border is 'in' or 'out' of the element. As far as I can remember the border is suppose to be added outside the containing element, and the width of the border added to the total width of the element. for example a div with a width of 598 and a border of 1px solid black, would therfore give the div a total width of 600; workaround would be to give the div the desired with ie 600 and nest a second div within with the border;
