-webkit-text-fill-color

Non-standard
This feature is non-standard and is not on a standards track. Do not use it on production sites facing the Web: it will not work for every user. There may also be large incompatibilities between implementations and the behavior may change in the future.

The -webkit-text-fill-color CSS property specifies the fill color of characters of text. If this property is not set, the value of the color property is used.

/* <color> values */
-webkit-text-fill-color: red;
-webkit-text-fill-color: #000000;
-webkit-text-fill-color: rgb(100, 200, 0);

/* Global values */
-webkit-text-fill-color: inherit;
-webkit-text-fill-color: initial;
-webkit-text-fill-color: unset;
