Chapter 10. Text Properties > kerning-pair-threshold Property

10.27. kerning-pair-threshold Property

The kerning-pair-threshold property controls the font-size value at which pair kerning is activated. This value exists because when font sizes are very small, kerning may make letters run together and thus make words unreadable.

The kerning-pair-threshold property has two unique values, auto and a length value, in addition to the usual initial and inherit values. The auto value is the default and tells the browser to choose its own value for when pair kerning should kick in. The length value explicitly tells the browser the font size at which (or above) pair kerning should take effect. The initial value forces the default value, and the inherit value takes on whatever parent value may already be set.
