In CSS property padding and margin can be used to tab space instead of non-breaking spaces (nbsp).

By using padding property :

By using padding property we can give any amount of spaces in any direction of an element (i.e, top, right, bottom, left) from the border of the element. Here we only deal with the spaces so we need only two padding property i.e, padding-left and padding-right.

Syntax :

 
padding-left : value;
or
padding-right : value;

Parameter : No parameter required.

Example :




<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  
<head>
<script src=
</script>
    <style>
        div {
            width: 300px;
            height: 100px;
            background-color: red;
        }
          
        P {
            width: 100px;
            height: 100px;
            background-color: green;
            text-align: center;
            font-weight: bold;
        }
    </style>
    <script>
        $(document).ready(function() {
            $("button").click(function() {
                $("#demo").css("padding-left", "30px");
            });
        });
    </script>
</head>
  
<body>
  
    <div id="demo">
  
        <p> Block 1 </p>
  
        <button>Submit</button>
    </div>
  
</body>
  
</html>

Output :
Before Click.

After Click.
