Property
width
Values
<length>, <percentage>, auto
Initial
auto
Inherited
no

This property can be applied to text elements, but it is most useful with replaced elements such as images. The width is to be enforced by scaling the image if necessary. When scaling, the aspect ratio of the image is preserved if the 'height' property is 'auto'.

Example:

      IMG.icon { width: 100px }

If the 'width' and 'height' of a replaced element are both 'auto', these properties will be set to the intrinsic dimensions of the element.

Negative values are not allowed.

Width (?), n. [From Wide.]

The quality of being wide; extent from side to side; breadth; wideness; as, the width of cloth; the width of a door.
