Subject: RE: [dita] Formal Imagemaps

For clients that require all tables to have captions, I currently use
<table> and the authors are told they must include a <title>. Some authoring
tools let me enforce the title, even though the DTD does not.

Not ideal, since DocBook tables require the caption (as do their figures),
which ensure the authors stay in line :) without the need to customize the
authoring tool.

I'm in favor of adding formal tables and figures to a future DITA release.
Don, could you add this to the list of features for the future please?

Best Regards,

Subject: RE: [dita] Formal Imagemaps

I'm having a problem, too, with missing captions on both figures and tables.
Many corporate style guides require figure and table captions in all cases,
not some of the time. I wonder, for example, why there is no figure
caption(title) available for simple tables. 

We can specialize at the moment, but it shouldn't be necessary.

Subject: [dita] Formal Imagemaps

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...
