size

This is an experimental technology
Because this technology's specification has not stabilized, check the compatibility table for usage in various browsers. Also note that the syntax and behavior of an experimental technology is subject to change in future versions of browsers as the specification changes.

Summary

The size CSS at-rule descriptor, used with the @page at-rule, defines the size and orientation of the box which is used to represent a page. Most of the time, this size corresponds to the target size of the printed page if applicable.

Size might either be defined with a "scalable" keyword (in this case the page will fill the available dimensions) or with absolute dimensions.

/* <length> values */

/* 2 values: width then height */
size: 4in 6in; 

/* Keyword values for absolute size */
size: A4;
size: B5;
size: JIS-B4;
size: letter;

/* Mixing size and orientation */
size: A4 portrait;
