Description

I haven't yet checked if this works or not. The title attribute of the AREA
element should appear where the shape appears as well as over any boxes
created for the element itself.

I'll verify this when 1995 is implemented, this bug is just here to remind me
to do just that.

Adding dependencies. See also bug 8131.

Marking html4. Nom. nsbeta3, recc. nsbeta3+. IIUC this is basic behavioral 
correctness of handling of HTML 3.2 AREA elements, widely used on the web as a 
navigational jumping-off point. If you don't see the image titles as tooltips, 
the navigational maps become very hard to use because you're lacking the TITLE 
cue of what the image means.

AREA elements *do* show their 'title' attributes. Strangely, however, they do 
not appear to show the cool "Location" and "Link will open in" lines that <A> 
elements show. This is inconsistent.

Why does this only partially work? This is very strange...

cc'ing various relevant people. Tested with Win32 build 2000071215.
does NOT block 7954 (HTML4 compliance)
does NOT block 1995 (show all metadata to user)
depends on 27828 (tooltip implementation)

Renominating for nsbeta3, recommending nsbeta3-: This is not a showstopper at
all, and does not break standards compliance. It 'merely' causes an 
inconsistent user experience.

Simple test case with one image map and lots of AREA elements (HTML4 Strict) [see bug 8131]
There's no mystery about this. Ben's changes to FillInHTMLTooltip only check the 
HREF and TARGET attributes for A elements, not for AREA elements. The fix would 
be easy.

We need more information -- why should this be fixed for beta3?

Ben has removed the code showing "Location:" and "Link will open in:" tooltips, 
because they were unpopular. So the fact that they don't appear is a good thing 
:-). The TITLE attribute on AREA elements seems to work fine. As far as I can 
tell, everything in this bug has been addressed.

I'm marking it FIXED by the original tooltip checkin, bug 27828.

Ian.

This works for me in the Aug 24th build. Can you please check too ?

yep. The bug wasn't fixed so much as made invalid by a change of circumstances
(the bits that were missing on AREA were removed from A).
