Thank you Cameron for clarifying and providing an example for defining a default color.

Sairus, I believe this provides an answer to one of your question about what could be done if a particular color variable isn't defined in CPAL but doesn't address another issue about hard-coded color that Chris Lilley raised in his comment. Could you please provide the suggested changes to the language Chris Lilley proposed?

Thank you,

Sorry for my slow reply here.

I don't remember an example that demonstrated how to do that. But you can do it like this:

<path fill="var(--color0, yellow)" d="..."/>

to use yellow when the --color0 variable is not defined.
