Thanks to everyone who has sent me feedback on the
draft-ietf-html-clientsideimagemap-00.txt Internet Draft. By far the most
common comment is that it requires some sort of polygon support. How does
this sound as an emendment to section 2.1 of the I-D?

Possible shapes are "RECT", "CIRCLE", and "POLYGON" which specify
rectangular, circular, and polygonal regions respectively...

...For a polygon the coordinates are specified as
"x1,y1,x2,y2,...,xn,yn" specifying the coordinates of successive
vertices of the polygon. If the last point is not the same as
the first point, the browser should infer a side connecting them.
Polygons must be simple, with the sides not crossing each other.
There is no restriction to the number of sides for a polygon
except for the number of points specifiable within the LITLEN of
