HTML <mark> style Attribute

A style attribute on a <mark> tag assigns a unique style to the element.

Its value is CSS that defines the appearance of the mark element.

Example

#

A style attribute on a <mark> element.

Paul Cézanne was a post-impressionist painter.

<p>
  Paul Cézanne was a 
  <mark style="background: lavender;">post-impressionist</mark>
  painter.
</p>

Using style

The style attribute specifies the style, i.e. look and feel, of the <mark> element.

A style contains any number of CSS property/value pairs, separated by semicolons (;).

The style attribute overrides any other style that was defined in a <style> tag or an external CSS file.

This inline styling affects the current <mark> element only.
