Deprecated: This feature is no longer recommended. Though some browsers might still support it, it may have already been removed from the relevant web standards, may be in the process of being dropped, or may only be kept for compatibility purposes.

The version attribute is used to indicate what specification a SVG document conforms to. It is only allowed on the root <svg> element. It is purely advisory and has no influence on rendering or processing.

While it is specified to accept any number, the only two valid choices are currently 1.0 and 1.1.

You can use this attribute with the following SVG elements:

<svg version="1.1" viewBox="0 0 100 100" xmlns="">
  <rect x="10" y="10" width="80" height="80" />
