Formal syntax: auto | sRGB | <name> | <uri> | inherit
  • autoThis is the default behavior. All colors are presumed to be defined in the sRGB color space unless a more precise embedded profile is specified within content data. For images that do have a profile built into their data, that profile is used.
  • sRGBThe source profile is assumed to be sRGB. This differs from auto in that it overrides an embedded profile inside an image.
  • <name>A name corresponding to a defined color profile that is in the user agent's color profile description database.
  • <uri>The location of a standard ICC profile resource. Just like specifying sRGB, it overrides an embedded profile.
