The coords element specifies the coordinates of a linkable region in an imagemap.

This element contains text data representing coordinate data for image maps. Pixels are the recommended units for describing coordinates. The syntax of the coordinate data depends on the shape described by the coordinates, and is based on the image map definition in HTML. It uses the following data for the appropriate shapes:
Shape
Data format
rect
left-x, top-y, right-x, bottom-y
circle
center-x, center-y, radius
poly
x1, y1, x2, y2, ..., xN, yN. To close the polygon, ensure that the first x and y coordinate pair and the last are the same.

Attributes

The following attributes are available on this element: Universal attribute group (with a narrowed definition of translate, given below), outputclass, and keyref.

translate
Indicates whether the content of the element should be translated or not. For this element the default value is "no". Setting to "yes" will override the default. The DITA architectural specification contains a list of each OASIS DITA element and its common processing default for the translate value; because this element uses an actual default, it will always be treated as translate="no" unless overridden as described. Available values are:
no
The content of this element is not translateable.
yes
The content of this element is translateable.
