Two Questions From Webdesign for Beginners Course

Hi, I have a couple of questions regarding something that was mentioned in Webdesign for Beginners Course.

The instructor said something about using a base number, and he also mentioned the code to put into the normal.css file. * { box-sizing: border-box; } I would like to know if there is a tutorial or some other information one this. I did Google these and what I found was some vague information or information that just glossed over the terms.

I would appreciate any help on this matter.

LSVRthemes and ianyates, thanks for the information. I knew about box-sizing but I didn’t understand why the instructor said to put the code in a reset css. Ian the first quik tip video explained that one well. Thank you for that.
