Classification Properties
display | visibility | position | float | clear

What Do They Do?
The classification properties serve to classify elements and select which layout models will be used in their display. In the visual media formatting model, an element's rendering is based heavily upon, among other things, the positioning method specified (floating, positioned or normal flow positioning) and the classification type of the element's box (the 'display' property.)
