This is an experimental technology
Because this technology's specification has not stabilized, check the compatibility table for the proper prefixes to use 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 spec changes.


The margin-inline-end CSS property defines the logical inline end margin of an element, which maps to a physical margin depending on the element's writing mode, directionality, and text orientation. In other words, it corresponds to the margin-topmargin-rightmargin-bottom or margin-left property depending on the values defined for writing-mode, direction, and text-orientation.

It relates to margin-block-start, margin-block-end, and margin-inline-start, which define the other margins of the element.

/* <length> values */
margin-inline-end: 10px;      /* An absolute length */
margin-inline-end: 1em;       /* A length relative to the text size */
margin-inline-end: 5%;        /* A margin relative to the nearest block container's width */

/* Keyword values */
margin-inline-end: auto;

/* Global values */
margin-inline-end: inherit;
margin-inline-end: initial;
margin-inline-end: unset;


The margin-inline-end property takes the same values as the margin-left property.
