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>.

Examples

<math>

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

  <mspace width="100px" />

</math>

  • Support for negative values for the width attribute has been implemented in Gecko 23.0 (Firefox 23.0 / Thunderbird 23.0 / SeaMonkey 2.20).
