The media attribute specifies a media query that must be matched for a style sheet to apply.

Only one element is using this attribute: <style>

<svg viewBox="0 0 240 220" xmlns="">
    rect { fill: black; }
  <style media="all and (min-width: 600px)">
    rect { fill: seagreen; }

  <text y="15">Resize the window to see the effect</text>
  <rect y="20" width="200" height="200" />

Usage notes

Value <media-query-list>
Default value all
Animatable Yes

This value holds a media query that needs to match in order for the style sheet to be applied.

If not specified, the style sheet is applied unconditionally.
