CSS max-inline-size Property

Description

The max-inline-size CSS property defines the maximum width or height of an element, depending on its writing mode. It is a logical property, meaning that it responds to changes in the writing mode of the element. This is in contrast to the max-width and max-height properties, which are physical properties and do not respond to changes in writing mode. The max-inline-size property is useful for creating layouts that are responsive to different writing modes, such as horizontal writing mode for Latin languages and vertical writing mode for Asian languages. It is also useful for creating layouts that are responsive to different screen sizes and devices.
