Subject Re: how to use usemap in img tag
Date Tue, 28 Sep 2004 17:24:36 GMT

Thanks for the reply and the help. I am converting existing HTML to XML in order to be able
to use the skins with the current version of the trunk and to get the PDF output. And, I'm
working to do it very quickly, with a lot of files, so, I've opted to put in the usemap into
the DTD, which seems to work well. I pulled the definition out of the XHTML DTD and simplified
it to fit in with forrest. And it's quite lovely that with the XSLT the tags pass on through
and render correctly, so I'm very pleased to not have to dig around in the XSLT conversion

If anyone else is interested, I can post my changes and I will research the proper methods
for doing so.

thanks again,

Tamara Harpster
