The offset-inline-end property takes the same values as the left property.

Formal syntax

<a href="css/left" title="&lt;length&gt; | &lt;percentage&gt; | auto"><'left'></a>


The offset-inline-end CSS property defines the logical inline end offset of an element, which maps to a physical offset depending on the element's writing mode, directionality, and text orientation. It corresponds to the toprightbottom, or left property depending on the values defined for writing-mode, direction, and text-orientation.

It relates to offset-block-start, offset-block-end, and offset-inline-start, which define the other offsets of the element.
