NativeWind is built upon the Tailwind CSS style language. As such the core-concepts of Tailwind CSS apply to NativeWind. Recommend you read their guides on:
It is also important to understand that since CSS styles are generated via the Tailwind CLI, the entire Tailwind CSS language & compiler options are available for web.
This documentation only documents whats is universally compatible, but you can always use a platform prefix to apply styles that are only support on web.

NativeWind works in a similar manner to CSS, it can accept all classes but will only apply the styles that it support. For example, if you use
grid, this will work on web but not on native.
