Hexadecimal number representing an RGB color value. For example, '#8b008b' specifies dark magenta. You can use either uppercase or lowercase letters as part of a hexadecimal value.

ID for this document element, specified as a character vector or string scalar. The DOM generates a session-unique ID when it creates the document element. You can specify your own ID.

Tag for this document element, specified as a character vector.

The DOM generates a session-unique tag when it creates the document element. Structure the tag as class:id, where class is the class of the element and id is the value of the Id property. You can specify a tag to replace the generated tag. Specifying your own tag can make it easier to identify where an issue occurred during document generation.

Either a CSS color name or a hexadecimal RGB value.
