Examples

HTML

The HTML contains an SVG definition for a <circle>.

<textarea id="log" rows="3" cols="50"></textarea>
<svg
  xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg"
  xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink">
  <circle cx="50" cy="50" r="25" />
</svg>

JavaScript

The code below creates a style element (an SVGStyleElement) and adds it to the SVG.

const svg = document.querySelector("svg");
// Create the `style` element in the SVG namespace
const style = document.createElementNS('http://www.w3.org/2000/svg', 'style');
const node = document.createTextNode('circle { fill: red; }');
svg.appendChild(style);
style.appendChild(node);

The code below then logs the sheet and CSS rule associated with this new element, using style.sheet. To make

// Log the sheet associated with this new element.
const log = document.getElementById("log")
log.value = `${style.sheet} with rules[0].cssText:\n ${style.sheet.rules[0].cssText}`;

Result

The result is shown below. On success, the log shows the CSSStyleSheet object applied to the SVG circle.
