The tab-size property in CSS is used to specify the width of the tab character. The tab-size usually displays a single space character in an HTML document. Some elements like <textarea> and <pre> elements display the tab-size.

Syntax: 

tab-size: number|length|initial|inherit;

Property Value: The value of tab-size property is listed below: 

  • number: It is used to set the number of space characters in a tab. Its default value is 8.
  • length: It is used to set the length character. But it is not supported by most of the browsers.
  • initial: This property is used to set its default value.
  • inherit: It is used to inherit the property from its parent.
