« SVG Attribute reference home

The points attribute define a list of points required to draw a  <polyline> or <polygon> element.

Each point is define by a X and a Y coordinate in the user coordinate system. It's a common practice (but not required) to use a comma to mark out the X and Y coordinate of each point and to use space to mark out each point.
