See this example:

(by the way,  how do I embed a live example like I see in other questions?)

circle{ BackgroundColor Yellow }
.connector{ BackgroundColor Pink; Padding 2 5 }
title Test of SVG rendering of Circle

When the above is rendered to SVG, the B and C connectors are rendered as follows:

<ellipse cx="146" cy="96.2656" fill="#FFFF00" rx="10" ry="10" style="stroke:#181818;stroke-width:0.5;"/>
