The <lcAreaShape> element supports these values:

Define a rectangular region. If you leave the <shape> element blank, this is assumed.
Define a circular region.
Define a polygonal region.
Indicates the entire diagram.

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

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:
The content of this element is not translateable.
The content of this element is translateable.
See Using the -dita-use-conref-target value for more information.
