Subject: Re: [dita] Formal Imagemaps

Hi Gershon - the problem is that imagemap is specialized from the <fig>
element, and fig does not allow fig as a child. So, fig cannot legally
allow imagemap either.

This does mean that the imagemap could legally include a title element on
its own, but it's not part of the specification - you could probably bring
that up as a 1.2 or 1.3 enhancement.

             Please respond to                                             

One of my clients requires <imagemap> to have a caption. For now, I'll
specialize <fig> by adding <imagemap> as an optional child, but I was
wondering what the rational was for not making <imagemap> available in

PS. I'm not asking for this to be done in DITA 1.1. I just want to
understand the thinking at the time in case I'm missing something here...
