    The clip-path property prevents a portion of an element from drawing by defining a clipping region. The clipping region is a path specified as an URL referencing an inline or external SVG, or shape method such as circle(). The clip-path property replaces the now deprecated clip property.


    clip-path: <uri> | none | inherit
    .target { clip-path: url(resources.svg#c1); }
    .anothertarget { clip-path: none; }
    .yetanothertarget { inherit; }


    <uri> | none | inherit


    /* inline SVG  */
    .target { clip-path: url(#c1); }
    /* external SVG */
    .anothertarget { clip-path: url(resources.svg#c1); }
    /* circle */
    .circleClass { clip-path: circle(15px at 20px 20px); }
