Possible values

sWidth

String that specifies or receives one or more of the following values:

medium

Default. About 4px.

thin

Less than the default width.

Greater than the default width.

width

A floating-point number, followed by an absolute units designator (cm, mm, in, pt, or pc) or a relative units designator (em, ex, or px).
