I can see that the explanation was not really good. It's not the content of the element but the element it self I am referring to. What I have in mind is maybe an x- and y axis that could be replaced in the bottom or top(x axis), to the left or right(y axis). Actually this axis could be placed anywhere inside the element and make it possible for the element to increase or decrease its width and height in both directions, exactly like Flash can do it.

For vertical, see
(specifically the percentage and length values).
