Properties

This interface defines a large number of properties: one property for each CSS attribute defined by the CSS2 specification. The property names correspond closely to the CSS attribute names, with minor changes required to avoid syntax errors in JavaScript. Multiword attributes that contain hyphens, such as “font-family,” are written without hyphens in JavaScript, and each word after the first is capitalized: fontFamily. Also, the “float” attribute conflicts with the reserved word float, so it translates to the property cssFloat.

The complete set of properties is listed in the following table. Since the properties correspond directly to CSS attributes, no individual documentation is given for each property. See a CSS reference, such as Cascading Style Sheets: The Definitive Guide, by Eric A. Meyer (O’Reilly), for the meaning and legal values of each. All of the properties are strings. Setting any of these properties may throw the same exceptions, for the same reasons as a call to CSSStyleDeclaration.setProperty( ).
