Use kerning?


Override the browser's default rule for kerning pairs of adjacent characters.

Property values

Font kerning is used on most serif and sans-serif fonts, following the rules established by the font designer. When enabled, each pair of two letters is carefully tweaked to be closer or further apart, using hints that the designer embedded in the font file.

Kerning is usually desirable for all but the tiniest of font sizes, when it becomes a hindrance to legibility.

Override the system's behavior regarding the use of kerning:

normal Font kerning is enabled
none Font kerning is disabled
auto Let the browser decide whether or not to use kerning, based on the size of the font


font-kerning: none;
