HTML <figure> style Attribute

The style attribute on a <figure> tag assigns a unique style to the figure element. A style contains one or more CSS property/value pairs that define the appearance of the figure element.

Example

#

A style attribute on a <figure> element.

<figure style="display:inline-block;padding:10px;border: 3px solid brown;">
  <img src="/img/html/sangiorgio.jpg">
</figure>

Using style

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