Measuring units for padding

All padding values must be given in one measuring system. If one padding is given in ems, another in pixels, you can get different margins between the examples of the same class. Look it an example of tabs. Here I show the padding of each tab.


Incorrect: padding: 0.2em 15px 0.2em 0.3em;

Correct: padding: 2px 15px 2px 3px;

As you can see the black hairline disappears between second-third and fourth-fifth tabs.
