This property is deprecated and is not supported in Windows Internet Explorer 8 and higher document compatibility modes.

Kashida is a typographic effect that justifies lines of text by elongating characters at carefully chosen points. It is used in Arabic writing systems.
Kashida justification increases the length of a line by elongating cursive (Arabic) characters at certain points. The semantics of text-kashida and -ms-text-kashida-space are opposite each other: "text-kashida:100%" is nearly equivalent to "text-kashida-space:0%".
The text-kashida-space property applies to block elements only.
