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

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

<svg viewBox="0 0 10 10" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg">
  <style>
    circle {
      fill: gold;
      stroke: maroon;
      stroke-width: 2px;
    }
  </style>

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