The color attribute is used to provide a potential indirect value, currentcolor, for the fill, stroke, stop-color, flood-color, and lighting-color attributes.

Note: As a presentation attribute, color can be used as a CSS property. See CSS color for further information.

As a presentation attribute, it can be applied to any element, but as noted above, it has no direct effect on SVG elements.
