CSS bleed Property

The bleed CSS property specifies the extent of the page bleed area outside the page box.

This property only has an effect if marks are cropped.

It has two values: "auto" and "length". If the values of marks are cropped the "auto" value computes to 6pt. Otherwise it computes to zero. The "length" value specifies by how far outward, in each direction, the bleed area extends past the page box.

Some property extensions are added, such as -webkit- for Safari, Google Chrome, and Opera (newer versions), -ms- for Internet Explorer, -moz- for Firefox, -o- for older versions of Opera etc.

This property is deprecated.
