Negative Margins in CSS

If I used 49% instead f a negative margin will this create any adverse effects? It seems to work fine in IE, Mozilla, and Chrome.

1 Answer

A margin of 49% is a positive margin based on the width of the element.

Wasn't clear i meant {display: inline-block; width: 49%} instead of {display:inline-block; width: 50%; margin-right: -5px;}
