    Defining rectangles in svg:

    <svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg"
        viewBox="0 0 1000 200">
      <rect x="349" y="67"
          width="302" height="66"
          rx="5" ry="5"
          stroke-width="2" />

    Breaking it down

    Here are the properties used to define rectangles. If you omit rx and ry the corner radius will default to 0:

    • x & y: The x and y position of the top left corner of the rectangle.
    • width & height: The width and height of the rectangle.
    • rx & ry: Corner radius.
