The margin-inline-start property in CSS is used to define the logical inline start margin of an element. This property helps to place margin depending on the element’s writing mode, directionality, and text orientation.

Syntax:  

margin-inline-start: length | auto | initial | inherit | unset;

Property values:  

  • length: It sets a fixed value defined in px, cm, pt, etc. Negative values are allowed. Its default values.
  • auto: It is used when it is desired that the browser determines the width of the left margin.
  • initial: It is used to set the value of the margin-inline-start property to its default value.
  • inherit: It is used when it is desired that the element inherits the margin-inline-start property of its parent as its own.
  • unset: It is used to unset the default margin-block.
