Range for word-spacing and kerning


#1

In the CSS tutorial, in the sections on word-spacing and letter-spacing (kerning), there is no mention of what the range of values is, like in most other sections of the tutorial. I’d like to know the range. Thanks!


#2

looking at the documentation:

https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/word-spacing

there doesn’t seem to be a maximum value. You could try making it really large, see what happens

personally, i don’t think it matters. Usually, you would only insert reasonable values, given you are building a webpage


#3

so then, trial and error :slight_smile:


#4

yes, but why? Mostly, you will implement sensible values. You will very likely need an absurd large value, i don’t see the point


#5

I still don’t understand why, in the tutorial, you don’t provide a range of what would constitute “reasonable” or “sensible” values. It just seems too open-ended, after other code that has a specific range of values.

Programming is open ended, its the programmers job to narrow it down and write the right instruction (aka code)

well, its for a website. So of course you want to ensure good readability.
