CSS page Property
page property is used with paged media to specify a particular type of page on which an element must be displayed.
page property is used in conjunction with the
@page at-rule to determine which type of page should be used with certain elements.
For example, you could specify that all tables are printed in landscape orientation, while other elements are printed in portrait orientation.
page property accepts either a <custom-ident> or the
auto keyword as its value.
The <custom-ident> type is a case-sensitive identifier, however the
auto keyword is ASCII case-insensitive (as are all CSS keywords).
This means that it can have any one of the following values.
- This is a CSS keyword. Although the
pageproperty does not inherit, the
autovalue will ensure that its used value is the value specified on its nearest ancestor with a non-
autovalue. When specified on the root element, the used value for
autois the empty string.
- This is a generic data type that represents a custom identifier defined by the author of the style sheet.
In addition, all CSS properties also accept the following CSS-wide keyword values as the sole component of their property value:
- Represents the value specified as the property's initial value.
- Represents the computed value of the property on the element's parent.
- This value acts as either
initial, depending on whether the property is inherited or not. In other words, it sets all properties to their parent value if they are inheritable or to their initial value if not inheritable.
