  1. The article needs two imrovements/corrections:
    1) Stop including the property name in what you refer to as being a *value*. Property name is one thing and the value (of a property) is another thing!
    2) The article states that overflow: clip is set to the container to make overflow-clip-margin work. This is false.

    1. Hi Widheg, I apologize if my reference to the values caused confusion for you. However, I’d like you to know that the `overflow-clip-margin` property, indeed, requires the use of `overflow: clip;` to function correctly. For further information on this property, please refer to the MDN documentation.

      Thank you.
