    I saw that the service pack now work when the box-sizing is set to border-box.

    However, in kendo.common.less (line 5413) I see that content-box is still specified for k-widget.

    Is the intent of the service pack to allow us to override this safely, or was this overlooked in the change to support border-box?

    Hi Gary,

    By design Kendo UI styling relies on the default browsers content box model and only for some of the components border-box is applied. On the particular line you mentioned (5413) we explicitly set this rule in order to improve the integration between Kendo UI and Twitter Bootstrap 3 where everything gets box-sizing: border-box (link). Hence it is not recommended to override the default box-sizing with the traditional box model.
