This feature is obsolete. Although it may still work in some browsers, its use is discouraged since it could be removed at any time. Try to avoid using it.
This feature is non-standard and is not on a standards track. Do not use it on production sites facing the Web: it will not work for every user. There may also be large incompatibilities between implementations and the behavior may change in the future.
In Gecko-based applications like Firefox, the
-moz-background-inline-policy CSS property specifies how the background image of an inline element is determined when the content of the inline element wraps onto multiple lines. The choice of position has significant effects on repetition.
Note: This property has been standardized with the name
box-decoration-break, except that
box-decoration-break applies to borders, padding, margins etc in addition to backgrounds. The
continuous value is equivalent to
slice, and the
each-box value is equivalent to
clone. An equivalent to the
bounding-box value was not included in the standard.
-moz-background-inline-policy was replaced by
box-decoration-break in Firefox 32.0 (and other products based on Gecko 32.0).
- Initial value:
- Applies to: inline elements
- Inherited: no
- Computed value: as specified
-moz-background-inline-policy: bounding-box | continuous | each-box
- The background image is positioned (and repeated) in the smallest rectangle that contains all of the inline boxes for the element. It is then clipped to be visible only within those boxes, according to the
- The background image is positioned (and repeated) as if the inline box were not broken across lines, and then this long rectangle is sliced into pieces for each line.
- The background image is positioned (and repeated) separately for each box of the inline element. This means that an image with
no-repeatmay be repeated multiple times.
