CSSFontPaletteValuesRule: overrideColors property

The read-only overrideColors property of the CSSFontPaletteValuesRule interface is a string containing a list of color index and color pair that are to be used instead. It is specified in the same format as the corresponding override-colors descriptor.


A string containing a comma-separated list of color index and color pair

This example first defines a few at-rules, among them two @font-palette-values. As these rules live in the last stylesheet added to the document, the palette will be the second CSSRule returned by the last stylesheet in the document (document.styleSheets[document.styleSheets.length-1].cssRules).
