In-Depth Information
In Example 12.3 the coordinates are plotted with rectangular image mappings, but
there are other shapes that can be used: the circle and polygon. (The polygon shape can
be used to customize the area of the link.) Note: All coordinate values are relative to the
top left corner of the image (0,0).
