letter-spacing

Sets the amount of additional space between letters in the object.

{ letter-spacing: sSpacing }

sSpacing

Variant that specifies or receives one of the following values:

normal

Default. Default spacing.

length

Floating-point number, followed by an absolute units designator (cm, mm, in, pt, or pc) or a relative units designator (em, ex, or px).

For more information about the supported length units, see Length units reference.

The property has a default value of normal. It is inherited.

When specified as a positive length value, the letter-spacing property adds the specified value to the default spacing between characters within an element. A negative length value decreases the space between characters. Letter spacing can be influenced by justification.

The following example uses the letter-spacing property to change the space between letters. This example uses the BLOCKQUOTE element as a selector to change the spacing to -0.2 millimeters for all BLOCKQUOTE element objects on the page:

<style>
    blockquote {letter-spacing:-0.2mm}
</style>
