loose Default. Grid used for Japanese and Korean characters. In this mode, a constant width increment is applied to characters as follows: Wide characters and narrow kana characters are incremented to obtain an exact grid fit, as specified by the IHTMLRuleStyle2::layoutGridChar property. Other narrow characters, except connected and cursive characters, are incremented by half of the increment amount applied to wide characters. Other characters, including connected and cursive characters, are not incremented, and behave as if no character grid is set. strict Grid used for Chinese, as well as Japanese (Genko) and Korean characters. Only the ideographs, kanas, and wide characters are snapped to the grid. Other characters are rendered as usual, as though the -ms-layout-grid-mode attribute is set to
linefor text spans containing these characters. This mode also disables special text justification and character width adjustments normally applied to the element. Finally, if there is no line-break opportunity in a text span that exceeds the line boundary, the text is pushed to the next line and the last part of the previous line is left blank.
fixed Grid used for monospaced layout. The layout rules are as follows: All noncursive characters are treated as equal; every character is centered within a single grid space by default. Runs of cursive characters are treated as strips the same as in a
