CSS Initial Letter

Last updated on : 2022-04-10

Note:
CSS Initial Letter shows a browser compatibility score of 17. This is a collective score out of 100 to represent browser support of a web technology. The higher this score is, the greater is the browser compatibility. The browser compatibility score is not a 100% reflection for every browser and the web technology support. However, it does give you an estimate on how much you should rely on a particular web technology in terms of browser compatibility.

Overview

The css-initial-letter property allows you to create an enlarged cap, including a drop or raised cap, in a robust way. The shape of the letter is preserved and its edges will not be cut off along the side of the frame.
