HTMLImageElement: vspace property

Deprecated: This feature is no longer recommended. Though some browsers might still support it, it may have already been removed from the relevant web standards, may be in the process of being dropped, or may only be kept for compatibility purposes. Avoid using it, and update existing code if possible; see the compatibility table at the bottom of this page to guide your decision. Be aware that this feature may cease to work at any time.

The obsolete vspace property of the HTMLImageElement interface specifies the number of pixels of empty space to leave empty on the top and bottom of the <img> element when laying out the page.


An integer value specifying the height, in pixels, of the vertical margin to apply to the top and bottom sides of the image.

Usage notes

The value specified for vspace is mapped to the margin-top and margin-bottom properties to specify the height of those margins in pixels.

Warning: This property is obsolete. You should instead use the CSS margin property and its longhand forms to establish margins around an <img>.
