SVG Polygon – <polygon>

The <polygon> element is used to create a graphic that contains at least three sides.

Polygons are made of straight lines, and the shape is “closed” (all the lines connect up).

Polygon comes from Greek. “Poly” means “many” and “gon” means “angle”.

Example 1:

<!DOCTYPE html>

<svg height=”210″ width=”500″>
<polygon points=”200,10 250,190 160,210″ style=”fill:lime;stroke:purple;stroke-width:1″ />
