17.3. clip Property

By default, the bounding box of any given block-level element displays everything contained within it. Using the clip property, it is possible to define what portion of the content contained within the box is actually visible to the viewer.

There are three named values that apply to clip: rect, which defines a rectangle outlined by units of measurement; auto, which sets the clipping value to the default visible value; and inherit, which adopts its value from the parent. Of these three, it is really the rect value that defines the clip property.
