Class CSS

  extended by javax.swing.text.html.CSS
All Implemented Interfaces:

public class CSS
extends Object
implements Serializable

Defines a set of CSS attributes as a typesafe enumeration. The HTML View implementations use CSS attributes to determine how they will render. This also defines methods to map between CSS/HTML/StyleConstants. Any shorthand properties, such as font, are mapped to the intrinsic properties.

The following describes the CSS properties that are suppored by the rendering engine:

The following are modeled, but currently not rendered.

Note: for the time being we do not fully support relative units, unless noted, so that p { margin-top: 10% } will be treated as if no margin-top was specified.
