Syntax

vspace="number"

Description

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

Example

The vspace attribute is 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

This attribute takes a number representing the amount of spacing to appear above and below the image in pixels.

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.
