The SVG <style> element allows style sheets to be embedded directly within SVG content.

Note: SVG's style element has the same attributes as the corresponding element in HTML (see HTML's <style> element).

    circle {
      fill: gold;
      stroke: maroon;
      stroke-width: 2px;

  <circle cx="5" cy="5" r="4" />
