CSS letter-spacing Property

The letter-spacing property controls the amount of space between each letter in a given element or block of text. Values supported by letter-spacing include font-relative values (em, rem), parent-relative values (percentage), absolute values (px) and the normal property, which resets to the font's default.

The letter-spacing property in CSS is used to set the spacing behavior between text characters i.e increasing or decreasing the space between characters in a text.
