  • x - for classes that set both *-left and *-right
  • y - for classes that set both *-top and *-bottom
  • blank - for classes that set a margin or padding on all 4 sides of the element
<Box m="2rem" /> // margin: 2rem;
<Box mx="auto" /> // margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;
<Box m={[ "16px", "24px" ]} /> // sets margin `16px` on all viewports and `24px` from the first breakpoint and up
