When I have other elements on a page together with a canvas, in
order to compute an ideal canvas size, I need to query, or
compute, things like the margin, border and padding heights of
elements, particularly the body element. I have not so far found
any way through the DOM to obtain this information. The queries
I've found return (content area + padding) or (content area +
padding + border). I have found no query whose result is
influenced by the margin nor any to tell me the padding.
Style queries return empty strings unless a style is actually set
on the element so are useless for elements having default
Can anyone suggest a way to determine this information?
