Property Value

The default value is NaN.

A double value as described above, (excepting Auto) followed by one of the following unit specifiers: px, in, cm, pt.

px (default) is device-independent units (1/96th inch per unit)

in is inches; 1in==96px

cm is centimeters; 1cm==(96/2.54) px

pt is points; 1pt==(96/72) px
