    <mspace>

    The MathML <mspace> element is used to display a blank space, whose size is set by its attributes.

    Attributes

    class, id, style
    Provided for use with stylesheets.
    depth
    The desired depth (below the baseline) of the space (see length for values and units).
    height
    The desired height (above the baseline) of the space (see length for values and units).
    linebreak
    Indicates a line-break at the space. Possible values: auto (default value), newline, nobreak, goodbreak, badbreak.
    Starting with MathML 3, it is preferred to use <mo> to control linebreaking.
    mathbackground
    The background color. You can use #rgb, #rrggbb and HTML color names.
    width
    The desired width of the space (see length for values and units).

    Note that some common attributes like mathcolor, mathvariant or dir have no effect on <mspace>.

      <mspace depth="40px" height="20px" />
