CSS: Combining different length units with calc()

calc() lets you mix CSS units. Ever wanted to give an element "the container's width minus 20px on each side"? Here you go:

Copy
width: calc(100% - (20px * 2));

When using Sass, you need to interpolate Sass expressions:

Copy
width: calc(100% - #{$margin})

Supported by all modern browsers and IE9+.
