    baseline-shift

    « SVG Attribute reference home

    The baseline-shift attribute allows repositioning of the dominant-baseline relative to the dominant-baseline of the parent text content element. The shifted object might be a sub- or superscript.

    As a presentation attribute, it also can be used as a property directly inside a CSS stylesheet, see css baseline-shift for further information.

    Usage context

    Categories Presentation attribute
    Value auto | baseline | super | sub | <percentage> | <length> | inherit
    Animatable Yes
    Normative document SVG 1.1 (2nd Edition)
    baseline
    There is no baseline shift; the dominant-baseline remains in its original position.
    sub
    The dominant-baseline is shifted to the default position for subscripts.
    super
    The dominant-baseline is shifted to the default position for superscripts.
    <percentage>
    The resulting value of the property is this percentage multiplied by the line-height of the <text> element. The dominant-baseline is shifted in the shift direction (positive value) or opposite to the shift direction (negative value) of the parent text content element by the resulting value. A value of "0%" is equivalent to "baseline".
    <length>
    The dominant-baseline is shifted in the shift direction (positive value) or opposite to the shift direction (negative value) of the parent text content element by the <length> value. A value of "0cm" is equivalent to "baseline".
