    Replaced element

    Summary

    In CSS, a replaced element is an element whose representation is outside the scope of CSS. These are kind of external objects whose representation is independent of the CSS. Typical replaced elements are <img>, <object>, <video> or form elements like <textarea> and <input>. Some elements, like <audio> or <canvas> are replaced elements only in specific cases. Objects inserted using the CSS content properties are anonymous replaced elements.

    CSS handles replaced elements specifically in some cases, like when calculating margins and some auto values.

    Note that some replaced elements, but not all, have intrinsic dimensions or a defined baseline, which is used by some CSS properties like vertical-align.
