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.

Available values are:
