mathbackground

The mathbackground global attribute sets the background-color of a MathML element.

Note: Use CSS for styling MathML whenever possible. The mathbackground attribute should only be included for applications that are not CSS-aware and will be overridden by the CSS background-color property value, if set.

Specifications

Specification
MathML Core
# dfn-mathbackground
  • In MathML 3 and earlier versions, a more limited set of values was supported. Since MathML Core, the syntax matches CSS <color> values.
  • This attribute was designed for MathML applications that are not CSS-aware. Since MathML Core, the use of equivalent CSS is recommended instead.
