At January FtF, we discussed the HTML 4.0 errata resolutions based on
Shane's document, which included the issue of content model for MAP
element [1].  As we accepted the change [2], the content model for
MAP element has changed from 

  <!ELEMENT MAP - - ((%block;)+ | AREA+) -- client-side image map -->

to

  <!ELEMENT MAP - - ((%block;) | AREA)+ -- client-side image map -->

in HTML 4.01.  So far, so good.

But XHTML 1.0 DTDs [3,4,5] still failed to fix this problem.  They're
defined as:

  <!ELEMENT map ((%block; | form | %misc;)+ | area+)>

We MUST fix this problem.  Actually, XHTML 1.1 Client-side Image Map
Module [6] has already fixed this problem.
