Syntax

drop-initial-before-adjust: before-edge | text-before-edge | central | middle | hanging | mathematical | <percentage> | <length> ;

Values

before-edge
The alignment point is at the intersection of the end-edge of the element and the 'before-edge' of the extended inline box of the element. This may include or not the line-height of the element, depending on the line-stacking-strategy.
text-before-edge
The alignment point is at the intersection of the end-edge of the element and the 'text-before-edge' baseline of the element.
central
The alignment point is at the intersection of the end-edge of the element and the 'central' baseline of the element.
middle
The alignment point is at the intersection of the end-edge of the element and the 'middle' baseline of the element.
hanging
The alignment point is at the intersection of the end-edge of the element and the 'hanging' baseline of the element.
mathematical
The alignment point is at the intersection of the end-edge of the element and the 'mathematical' baseline of the element.
<percentage>
The computed value of the property is this percentage multiplied by the computed 'line-height' of the element. The alignment point is on the end-edge of the inline box and is offset from the text-before-edge by the computed value. A value of '0%' makes the text-before-edge the alignment point.
<length>
The alignment-point is on the end-edge of the inline box. Its position along the end-edge is offset from the text-before-edge by the <length> value. A value of '0cm' makes the text-before-edge the alignment point.
