Letter Spacing

You’ve learned how to increase the spacing between lines of text and words, but it’s possible to get even more detailed: increasing the spacing between individual letters.

The technical term for adjusting the spacing between letters is called tracking. Tracking can be adjusted with the letter-spacing property in CSS.

h1 { letter-spacing: 0.3em; }

Like word spacing, it’s not common to increase the tracking in text, but sometimes it enhances the readability of uppercase text.



In style.css, set the letter spacing of the h2 elements to 0.02em.
