I have always had trouble remembering the correct order for CSS shortcuts like this:
margin: 3px 4px 2px 3px;
The order is Top, Right, Bottom, Left.
I have just found two ways to remember this.
The first is using the word trouble:
T R o u B L e
The consonants give the order.
The second (pointed out by a colleague this morning) is using a clockface starting at the top and going clockwise.
12 is at the Top
3 is on the Right side
6 is at the Bottom
9 is on the Left.
