important noteImportant

This documentation is preliminary and is subject to change.

Sets a value that indicates the font size used for text in the object.

Syntax

{ font-stretch: sFace }

Possible values

sFace

String that specifies one of the following values:

normal

Default. Indicates the face is neither condensed nor expanded.

wider

Specifies a wider value relative to the width of the parent element.

narrower

Specifies a narrower value relative to the width of the parent element.

ultra-condensed

Specifies the most condensed font face.

extra-condensed

Specifies the second most condensed font face.

semi-condensed

Specifies a slightly condensed font face.

semi-expanded

Specifies a slightly expanded font face.

expanded

Specifies an expanded font face.

extra-expanded

Specifies the second most expanded font face.

ultra-expanded

Specifies the most expanded font face.

inherit

Specifies that the property takes the same computed value as the property for the element's parent.

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

Remarks

Absolute keyword values have the following order, from narrowest to widest:

  • Ultra condensed

  • Extra condensed

  • Condensed

  • Semi condensed

  • Normal

  • Semi expanded

  • Expanded

  • Extra expanded

  • Ultra expanded

The scale is relative, so a font face that has a font-stretch value higher in the previous list above should never appear wider. When a font face does not exist for a given width, normal or condensed values map to a narrower font face. Otherwise, they map to a wider font face. Conversely, expanded values map to a wider font face; otherwise, a narrower face.
