CSS Property - Word Spacing

Value: normal | <length>
Initial: normal
Applies to: all elements
Inherited: yes
Percentage values: N/A

The CSS property "word-spacing" applies an addition to the default space between words. Values can be negative, but there may be implementation-specific limits. The UA is free to select the exact spacing algorithm. The word spacing may also be influenced by justification (which is a value of the "text-align" property).


p {
word-spacing: 1em;

The words here are spaced further apart by 1em

Here, the word-spacing between each word in "P" elements would be increased by "1em".

CSS1 core: UAs may interpret any value of "word-spacing" as "normal".
