Asian languages often employ page layout for characters for better visual formatting using a one or two-dimensional grid. This property controls the character spacing granularity when the 'layout-grid-mode' is set to 'char' or 'both', and the 'layout-grid-type' property is set to 'loose'. Visually, this property has an effect similar to the 'line-height' property.

div { layout-grid-mode: both; layout-grid-type: loose; layout-grid-char-spacing: 15px }
Content snapped to a layout grid
