How to use and identify inputs for filter effect primitives.

Filter Inputs

The value chosen for a filter effect primitive can be either one of six keywords or can be a string which matches a previous result attribute value within the same filter effect container. If no value is provided and this is the first filter effect primitive, then the input will be SourceGraphic. If no value is provided and this is a subsequent filter effect primitive, then this filter effect primitive will use the result from the previous filter primitive as its input.

If the value for result appears multiple times within a given filter container, then a reference to that result will use the closest preceding filter primitive with the given value for the result results. Forward references to results are an error and will not draw.
