padding-inline-end

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 padding-inline-end CSS property defines the logical inline end padding of an element, which maps to a physical padding depending on the element's writing mode, directionality, and text orientation. It corresponds to the padding-toppadding-rightpadding-bottom, or padding-left property depending on the values defined for writing-mode, direction, and text-orientation.

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