CSS - Canvas

CSS - Canvas


For all media, the term canvas describes “the space where the formatting structure is rendered.”

The canvas is infinite for each dimension of the space, but rendering generally occurs within a finite region of the canvas, established by the user agent according to the target medium.

For instance, user agents rendering to:

  • a screen generally impose a minimum width and choose an initial width based on the dimensions of the viewport.
  • a page generally impose width and height constraints.
  • an aural medium may impose limits in audio space, but not in time.
