The marker-offset property defines the distance between the nearest border edges of a marker and its associated principal box.

Unfortunately, however, this property is not supported in IE 6 or Netscape 7.

Possible Values:

  • length: Any length value.
  • auto: Default, Let the browsers automatically set it.

Applies to:

All the elements with a display of marker.

DOM Syntax:



Here is the example:

<ul style="list-style: inside square; marker-offset:2em;">
<li>Social Science</li>
<ol style="list-style: outside upper-alpha; marker-offset:2cm;">
<li>Social Science</li>

This will produce following result:

  • Maths
  • Social Science
  • Physics
  1. Maths
  2. Social Science
  3. Physics
