Negative margin issue in header

I found solution for negative margin issue in header. Instead adding a padding, border to the header to fix problem, just add

header {
overflow:hidden;
margin-top:-1px;
}

Hi,

What was this issue concerning Pavle?

Hi Craig,

In video there is a issue with negative margin collapsing. The problem is solved by adding padding or border. I found that this is the way to solve the problem. Somehow it looks like more "clean" approach. There is no need for adding unnecessary boarders and resizing of the padding elements to solve the problem

I just post this , to check feedback from experienced developers...
