CSS reference table

For useful information about Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), check out our reference table.

By Matt Rotter, Charity Kahn, and Paul Anderson

The Cascading Style Sheets, Level 1 specification is a great source of information about style sheets, but it can be a bit hairy to wade through. We've boiled down the most important information about each CSS property and its available values and packed it all into one giant table. (Default values appear in bold throughout the table.) If you want more information about a specific property, just click it to go to the pertinent chapter of the W3C's CSS specification. We have also included the positioning properties from the Cascading Style Sheets, Level 2 specification, which are already supported in many CSS browsers.

Note: This table uses JavaScript, so make sure you have it turned on in your browser before trying to view the table. Because of a JavaScript bug, certain items in the Values column may disappear if you resize your browser window. Just reload the page, and these values will reappear.
