Align HTML5 SVG to the center of the screen

SVG stands for Scalable Vector Graphics and it is a language for describing 2D-graphics and graphical applications in XML and the XML is then rendered by an SVG viewer.


Let us see an example of SVG −

<!DOCTYPE html>
         #svgelem {
            position: relative;
            left: 50%;
            -webkit-transform: translateX(-20%);
            -ms-transform: translateX(-20%);
            transform: translateX(-20%);
      <meta charset="utf-8" />
      <h2>HTML5 SVG Circle</h2>
      <svg id = "svgelem" height = "200" xmlns = "">
         <circle id = "redcircle" cx = "50" cy = "50" r = "50" fill = "red" />

To center it, add the CSS like the following −

# svgelem {
