<h4>Description</h4>
<p>Assigns <em>styles</em> to the target object, which may be a
container, shape, text, raster image, or pattern. Styles are
presentational attributes that define how the object is
rendered.</p>
<p><code>Styles</code> yields to a block if a block is present,
passing the target object as an argument. This is useful when
<code>styles</code> is chained to a container constructor
method such as <a href="rvg.html#RVG_g">g</a> or <a href=
"rvg.html#RVG_rvg">rvg</a>. By default, objects within a
container get the styles defined on the container.</p>
<p><code>Styles</code> returns the target object, so other
methods can be chained to it.</p>
<h4>Arguments</h4>
<p>The argument is a hash. The hash keys are style name
symbols. The hash values are the style values. RVG supports the
following style names.</p>
<dl>
<dt>:clip_path</dt>
<dd>An outline used to clip a shape or collection of shapes.
The value is an <a href="rvgclip.html#new">clipping
path</a>.</dd>
<dt>:clip_rule</dt>
<dd>If the <code>clip_path</code> style is used, how to
determine if a point is inside or outside a the clip path.
The value is a string, either 'nonzero' or 'evenodd'. The
default is 'nonzero'. See the <code>fill_rule</code> example
below.</dd>
<dt>:fill</dt>
<dd>The fill color. The value must be a <a href=
"imusage.html#color_names">color name</a> or a <a href=
"rvgpattern.html#new">pattern</a>. The default is
'black'.</dd>
<dt>:fill_opacity</dt>
<dd>The opacity of the fill color. A number between 0.0
(fully transparent) and 1.0 (fully opaque). The default is
1.0</dd>
<dt>:fill_rule</dt>
<dd>How to determine if a point is inside or outside a shape.
The value is a string, either 'nonzero' or 'evenodd'. The
default is 'nonzero'.</dd>
<dd>
The following descriptions of 'nonzero' and 'evenodd' are
from the <a href=
"http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG11/painting.html#FillProperties">SVG
1.1 standard</a>.
<dl>
<dt>nonzero</dt>
<dd>This rule determines the "insideness" of a point on
the canvas by drawing a ray from that point to infinity
in any direction and then examining the places where a
segment of the shape crosses the ray. Starting with a
count of zero, add one each time a path segment crosses
the ray from left to right and subtract one each time a
path segment crosses the ray from right to left. After
counting the crossings, if the result is zero then the
point is outside the path. Otherwise, it is inside.</dd>
<dt>evenodd</dt>
<dd>This rule determines the "insideness" of a point on
the canvas by drawing a ray from that point to infinity
in any direction and counting the number of path segments
from the given shape that the ray crosses. If this number
is odd, the point is inside; if even, the point is
outside.</dd>
</dl>
</dd>
<dd>See the examples below.</dd>
<dt>:opacity</dt>
<dd>Both the stroke and the fill opacity. A number between
0.0 (fully transparent) and 1.0 (fully opaque). The default
is 1.0. See below for an example.</dd>
<dt>:stroke</dt>
<dd>The stroke color. The value must be a <a href=
"imusage.html#color_names">color name</a> or a <a href=
"rvgpattern.html#new">pattern</a>. The default is 'none',
that is, transparent black ("#000000ff").</dd>
<dt>:stroke_dasharray</dt>
<dd>An array of numbers that specify the length of the dashes
and gaps with which to draw a dashed line. If the array
contains an odd number of values, the values are repeated to
produce an even number of dashes and gaps. The numbers are in
user coordinates. By default all lines are drawn as solid
lines. See below for an example.</dd>
<dt>:stroke_dashoffset</dt>
<dd>Normally a dashed line is drawn using the first number in
the stroke_dasharray as the length of the first dash. This
style can be used to specify a different starting point in
the array.</dd>
<dt>:stroke_linecap</dt>
<dd>The shape of the end of a line. The value may be one of
the strings 'butt', 'round', or 'square'. The default is
'butt'. See below for an example.</dd>
<dt>:stroke_linejoin</dt>
<dd>The shape of the corner where two lines are joined. The
value may be one of the strings 'miter', 'round', or 'bevel'.
The default is 'miter'. See below for an example.</dd>
<dt>:stroke_miterlimit</dt>
<dd>If the <code>stroke_linejoin</code> value is 'miter', a
number specifying the ratio of the miter to the thickness of
the lines being joined. When the limit is exceeded the join
is converted from a miter to a bevel. The value must be a
number greater than or equal to 1.0. The default is 4.0.</dd>
<dt>:stroke_opacity</dt>
<dd>The opacity of the stroke color. A number between 0.0
(fully transparent) and 1.0 (fully opaque). The default is
1.0 unless <code>stroke</code> has the default value
'none'.</dd>
<dt>:stroke_width</dt>
<dd>The thickness of the stroke. The default is 1 user
coordinate.</dd>
</dl>

"rvgtext.html#new">Text</a> class.)</p>
