Sets the block progression and layout orientation: deprecated in favor of the writing-mode property.
|Initial value|| |
|Applies to||All elements|
|CSS Object Model Property|| |
- Default. Top-to-bottom block flow. Layout is horizontal.
- Right-to-left block flow. Layout is vertical.
- Bottom-to-top block flow. Layout is horizontal.
- Left-to-right block flow. Layout is vertical.
Needs Examples: This section should include examples.
In vertical layout, text lines are rotated 90° clockwise. Images are not rotated, but tables are. Box layout in vertical orientations is exactly analogous to layout in the horizontal orientation: width, height, top, bottom, right, and left do not rotate with the text. Only one block progression is active at a time; these values cannot be combined. See -ms-writing-mode for additive block progression values. This property is based on the block-progression property of the CSS3 Text Layout module.
-ms-block-progression: tb | rl | bt | lr
There are no standards that apply here.
