HTML-CSS: Tips of the Day

How do I create a teardrop in HTML?

SVG approach:

You can achieve the double curve easily with an inline SVG and the <path/> element instead of the <polygon/> element which doesn't allow curved shapes.

The following example uses the element with:

  • 2 quadratic bezier curve commands for the 2 top curves (lines beginning with Q)
  • 1 arc command for the big bottom one (line beginning with A)
<svg width="30%" viewbox="0 0 30 42">
  <path fill="transparent" stroke="#000" stroke-width="1.5"
        d="M15 3
