The style attribute allows to style an element using CSS declarations. It functions identically to the style attribute in HTML.

All elements are using this attribute.

<svg viewbox="0 0 100 60" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg">
  <rect width="80"  height="40" x="10" y="10"
      style="fill: skyblue; stroke: cadetblue; stroke-width: 2;"/>

Usage notes

Value <style>
Default value None
Animatable No
The syntax of style data depends on the style sheet language. By default, the style sheet language is CSS.

Note: In theory, the contentStyleType attribute could be used to specify styling languages other than CSS, like XSL(T). However, this was never implemented satisfactorily in browsers, so you should not rely on it.
