Property Values

The following table describes the values of unicode-bidi property:

Value Description
normal The element does not offer an additional level of embedding (This is default)
embed If the element is inline, this value opens an additional level of embedding
bidi-override For inline elements this creates an override. For block container elements this creates an override for inline-level descendants not within another block container element
isolate The element's container directionality should be calculated without considering the content of this element
isolate-override The isolation behavior of the isolate keyword to the surrounding content and the override behavior of the bidi-override keyword to the inner content
plaintext The elements directionality calculated without considering its parent bidirectional state or the value of the direction property
initial Sets this property to its default value
inherit Inherits this property from its parent element

Technical Details

Default value normal
Applies to all elements, however some values have no effect on non-inline elements
Inherited yes
Computed value as specified
Animatable no See animatable properties.
