CSS Display

 CSS display property specifies if/how an element is displayed.

Every HTML element has a default display value depending on what type of element it is. The default display value for most elements is block or inline.

CSS Display- elements:

A block-level element always starts on a new line and takes up the full width available (stretches out to the left and right as far as it can).

Examples of block-level elements:

  • <div>
  • <h1> – <h6>
  • <p>
  • <form>
  • <header>
  • <footer>
  • <section>

CSS Display Inline:

An element set to inline-block is very similar to inline in that it will set inline with the natural flow of text (on the “baseline”). The difference is that you are able to set a width and height which will be respected.

li {
  display: inline;
