Style Web properties - On Premises 6.4

Object Properties

The Web tab contains properties that define how the text is formatted in the HTML page. The properties define a complete CSS definition as defined by the W3C recommendation, 17 Dec 1996 Cascading Style Sheets, level 1 (REC-CSS1-961217). Find a list of current W3C recommendations and other technical documents on the W3C website.

Style - Web Tab

Important: The concepts that CSS uses are quite different to the concepts we have become used to in word processor documents. Spend time reading the W3C recommendations and making sure you fully understand the CSS model before attempting to define any styles.
Not all web browsers fully support CSS, so may not always display the information as you intend.
