CSS - letter-spacing


The letter-spacing property modifies the amount of space placed between adjacent characters.

Possible Values:

  • normal : The default spacing between letters is not changed. In practice, this is equivalent to setting the value to 0.
  • length: This will add to the spacing between letters - the greater the length, the more space will be seen between letters. Negative values are permitted.

Applies to:

All the HTML elements.

DOM Syntax:



Following is the example which demonstrates how to set the space between characters.

<p style="letter-spacing:5px;">
This text is having space between letters.

This will produce following result:

This text is having space between letters.
