Definition and Usage
scroll-margin-inline-start property specifies the distance in the inline direction, between the snap position and the container.
This means that when you stop scrolling, the scrolling will quickly adjust and stop at a specified distance in the inline direction, between the snap position at the start of the child element and the container.
Inline direction is where the next character is put compared to the position of the existing characters in a line, and this is also how tags with CSS
display: inline; like <a> and <strong> tags are laid out in a text. Inline direction is dependent on the written language, i.e. Arabic where new charachters are laid out right to left which makes inline direction right to left, while pages in English have a left to right inline direction. Inline direction can be defined with CSS properties
Snap position is the position on the child element where it snaps into place in the container when you stop scrolling.
Note: This property only works if the scroll-snap-align property is set to 'start' for the inline direction.
scroll-margin-block properties are very similar to CSS properties
scroll-margin-right, but the
scroll-margin-inline properties are dependent on block and inline directions.
