But in the TDG example (2.0.12) the "units" attribute is set for areaspec.  
And I guess that the units are inherited. Right?

<areaspec units="calspair">
   <areaset id="oneway" coords="">
     <area id="oneway1" coords="300 400"/>
     <area id="oneway2" coords="325 340"/>
   <area id="myhouse" coords="425 590"/>

Strange, I haven't the same thing in the area element description. I have:


     The coordinates are expressed using the semantics of the
     CALS graphic attributes. The format of the coordinates
     is “x1,y1 x2,y2”.'

That is, there is a space " " and not a comma "," between y1 and x2. Are  
both correct?

Again, for me it is not exactly the same as "x1,y1,x2,y2"

Ok. Does it make sense if for graphic elements these units are interpreted  
as the following calspair: "x,y x,y"?
