 * 9.2.5 The 'display' property

    Value:  	inline | block | list-item | run-in | compact | marker |
                table | inline-table | table-row-group | table-header-group |
                table-footer-group | table-row | table-column-group |
                table-column | table-cell | table-caption | none | inherit
    Initial:  	inline
    Applies to:  	all elements
    Inherited:  	no
    Percentages:  	N/A
    Media:  	all

The values of this property have the following meanings:

    This value causes an element to generate a principal block box.
    This value causes an element to generate one or more inline boxes.
    This value causes an element (e.g., LI in HTML) to generate a principal
    block box and a list-item inline box. For information about lists and
    examples of list formatting, please consult the section on lists.
    This value declares generated content before or after a box to be a marker.
    This value should only be used with :before and :after pseudo-elements
    attached to block-level elements. In other cases, this value is interpreted
    as 'inline'. Please consult the section on markers for more information.
    This value causes an element to generate no boxes in the formatting
    structure (i.e., the element has no effect on layout). Descendant elements
    do not generate any boxes either; this behavior cannot be overridden by
    setting the 'display' property on the descendants.

    Please note that a display of 'none' does not create an invisible box; it
    creates no box at all. CSS includes mechanisms that enable an element to
    generate boxes in the formatting structure that affect formatting but are
    not visible themselves. Please consult the section on visibility for
run-in and compact
    These values create either block or inline boxes, depending on context.
    Properties apply to run-in and compact boxes based on their final status
    (inline-level or block-level). For example, the 'white-space' property only
    applies if the box becomes a block box.
table, inline-table, table-row-group, table-column, table-column-group,
table-header-group, table-footer-group, table-row, table-cell, and table-caption
    These values cause an element to behave like a table element (subject to
    restrictions described in the chapter on tables).

Note that although the initial value of 'display' is 'inline', rules in the
user agent's default style sheet may override this value. See the sample style
sheet for HTML 4.0 in the appendix.


Here are some examples of the 'display' property:

P   { display: block }
EM  { display: inline }
LI  { display: list-item }
IMG { display: none }

Conforming HTML user agents may ignore the 'display' property.
