Display options

The 'display' property has some additional options, including 'run-in', 'compact' and 'marker'.

Run in heading

The 'run-in' option is useful for creating specific styles for a range of text at the beginning of a block. An element given this style is assumed to be an in-line element that begins the block content of the next element. The style information only applies to the 'run-in' part of the resulting block. A single space character should appear between the content of the two elements. For example:

name { display: run-in ; font-weight: bold }
summary { display: block ; font-weight: medium }
