This feature is non-standard and is not on a standards track. Do not use it on production sites facing the Web: it will not work for every user. There may also be large incompatibilities between implementations and the behavior may change in the future.


The -webkit-box-reflect CSS property lets you reflect the content of an element in one specific direction.

Note: This feature is not intended to be used by Web sites. To achieve reflection on the Web, the standard way is to use the CSS element() function.
