Image Maps

Xitami supports NCSA-type clickable image maps. When an image has the ISMAP attribute, Xitami will search for and use an image map file if the browser cooperates. An image map file has the name of the image, the extension .map, and this syntax:

The URL can be any Internet URL, either an absolute image map, or a relative image map. Xitami will recognise and handle these types of URLs:

You can use these elements types in the image map:
Element syntax: Effect:
default url Defines the default URL for the image.
rect url x1,y1 x2,y2 Defines a rectangle between the two corner points specified. Assumes x2 >= x1, y2 >= y1.
circle url x1,y1 x2,y2 Defines a circle where (x1,y1) is the circle's center, and (x2,y2) is any point on its circumference.
point url x,y Defines a point. Accepts a click within about 3 pixels of the point.
poly url x,y... Defines a polygon, where (x1,y1)..(xn,yn) defines the perimeter of the polygon. You can specify up to 100 points.

There are many freely-available tools to help you create image maps. Xitami is compatible with these tools, so long as you create the image map in NSCA format.
