Chapter 18. Paged Media > marks Property

18.2. marks Property

The marks property is designed to set the type of sign (or “mark”) to appear defining the boundaries of the printed page. In a print shop, these marks define where the pages would be trimmed before binding, or where the pages should be aligned. In this case, it really just defines the printable area of the Web page.

The marks property is used in conjunction with the @page media type. The marks property can take one of four different named values: crop, which adds a crop mark to a page; cross, which adds a cross mark used to align sheets; none (the default), where no mark is visible; and the ubiquitous inherit, which takes on whatever parent value may have already been set for the property. You can see how this property can be used in Listing 18.2.
