vspace (HTML attribute)

Spec
Depr. Version
Yes HTML 4

Syntax

vspace="surrounding vertical space in pixels"

Description

The vspace attribute is similar to the hspace and provides a bit of ‘breathing space’ above and below an object, although it is not exactly a precision design tool, as Figure 1 shows.
Figure 1. Image object with vspace of 30 applied (note the space above and below image) Image bject with vspace of 30 applied (note the space above and below image)

Example

The vspace attribute set to "30" pixels around a left-aligned image object:

<object data="giant-dog.jpg" height="225" width="300" align="left"
vspace="30"></object>

Value

A number representing the amount of spacing above and below the image in pixels.

Compatibility

Although support for this attribute is good, it’s now deprecated, and is highly presentational in its nature. The desired visual effects can all be achieved with CSS and, as such, this attribute shouldn’t be used—it’s presented here for informational purposes only.
