Syntax
/* «length» value */
max-width: 3.5em;

/* «percentage» value */
max-width: 75%;

/* Keyword values */
max-width: none;
max-width: max-content;
max-width: min-content;
max-width: fit-content;
max-width: fill-available;

/* Global values */
max-width: inherit;
max-width: initial;
max-width: unset;
Possible values of CSS max-width:
«length»
Specify a specific value of the maximum width, for example, 150px, 30cm, etc.
