The marker-start attribute defines the arrowhead or polymarker that will be drawn at the first vertex of the given <path> element or basic shape.

Usage context

Value none | <funciri> | inherit
Animatable Yes
Normative document SVG 1.1 (2nd Edition)
Indicates that no marker symbol shall be drawn at the given vertex.
The <funciri> is a Functional IRI reference to the <marker> element which shall be used as the arrowhead symbol or polymarker at the given vertex or vertices. If the IRI reference is not valid (e.g., it points to an object that is undefined or the object is not a <marker> element), then the marker(s) will not be drawn.
