Case 2: One Value is "Auto"

Case 2: One Value is "Auto"

When only one value is set to auto, that value is the one calculated automatically using the previous formula. That is, that value will be maximized – made as large as possible.

Here is the previous example, which is now slightly modified:


  width: 30em }

P {

  width: 25em;

  margin-left: auto;

  margin-right: 3em }

Now, the right margin will indeed be 3em and the left margin will be calculated (2em).
