Chapter 9. Font Properties > font-stretch Property

9.7. font-stretch Property

The font-stretch property is designed to provide a normal, condensed or expanded font face. This property differs from the CSS1 property font-weight; font-weight deals with the “boldness” assigned to a font, while font-stretch is capable of actually changing the relative width of the individual characters that comprise the displayed font.

font-stretch does exactly what it says: it either compresses or stretches the appearance of a displayed font. font-stretch comes with nine different named values. Ranging from most condensed to most expanded, these values are ultra-condensed, extra-condensed, condensed, semi-condensed, normal, semi-expanded, expanded, extra-expanded and ultra-expanded. The universally applicable CSS2 value inherit, which takes the parent value set for font-stretch, is also available.
