/* Global values */

Computed valuean optimum value consisting of either an absolute length or the keyword normal
Animation typea length
Canonical orderthe unique non-ambiguous order defined by the formal grammar



The normal letter spacing for the current font. Unlike a value of 0, this keyword allows the user agent to alter the space between characters in order to justify text.
Specifies extra inter-character space in addition to the default space between characters. Values may be negative, but there may be implementation-specific limits. User agents may not further increase or decrease the inter-character space in order to justify text.
