b>Version: Level 1
Inherited: Yes
 
The letter-spacing property increases or decreases the spacing (width) of the blank (white) space between adjacent characters or letters. A positive value increases the spacing. A negative value decreases the spacing.
 
normal
 
The normal value is the default. With one exception, by declaring normal, you can ensure that any previous declaration will not effect the spacing. Even if normal is declared, the spacing could still be effected by justification by the text-align property. See the length value, below, for a way of turning off justification.
 
length
 
The length value can be negative or positive. A value of zero prevents justification of the text from occurring, even if justification has been declared. The length can be in any of the following seven units. Use the abbreviation.
