Standards information


You can use the -ms-wrap-through property to control the effect of exclusions—for instance, to cause one content block to wrap around an exclusion element and another to intersect the same exclusion element.

The wrapping context of a box is a collection of exclusion areas contributed by its associated exclusion boxes. When Windows Internet Explorer lays out a webpage, a box wraps its inline flow content in the area that corresponds to the subtraction of its wrapping context from its own content area. For more information about exclusion elements' impact on content flow, see the Definitions section of the CSS3 Exclusions specification.
