Display

inline – When we set this value, the element does not start on a new line and only takes up as much width as necessary (we can’t set width/height it won’t work)

block – When we set this value, element always starts on a new line and takes up the full width available (we can set width/height)

inline-block – It is combination of inline and block value. It doesn’t start on new line but we can set width and height.

none – The element will not be displayed at all (has no effect on layout)

flex – Displays an element as a block-level flex container.

inline-flex –  Displays an element as an inline-level flex container.

inline-table – The element is displayed as an inline-level table 

run-in – Displays an element as either block or inline, depending on context
