                <h1>CSS currentColor Example</h1>
<p>This is an example for <code>currentColor</code> property for an <a href="https://hashnode.com/post/writing-better-css-with-currentcolor-cit5mgva31co79c53ia20vetq">article on hashnode</a><p>

<p>CurrentColor can have many interesting implementations, here are few examples:</p>

<div class="demo-div">Keeping the CSS clean even with <a href="#">links</a> and SVGs(
  <svg viewBox="0 0 300 300"><use xlink:href="#icon-1"></use></svg>
  <svg viewBox="0 0 300 300"><use xlink:href="#icon-2"></use></svg>
  <svg viewBox="0 0 300 300"><use xlink:href="#icon-3"></use></svg>) in the code</div>

<div class="demo-div">
  currentColor also works with psuedo elements, even with <a class="tooltip-link tooltip-1" data-text="Tooltip" href="#">Different</a> <a class="tooltip-link tooltip-2" data-text="Tooltip" href="#">Colors</a>
</div>
<div class="shadow-div">
  <p>currentColor also works with <b>box-shadow</b>,<b>borders</b> and <b>hover styles</b></p>
  <p>and can be <b>Overriden</b> <i>dynamically</i></p>
</div>
<div class="demo-div gradient">
  <p>The background gradient in this section is made using currentColor</p>
</div>
