The a element is missing the coords and shape attributes, defined in HTML 4.01,
section 12.2 and 13.6.1.
The attributes must be defined similar to those on area.

As such, the processing the model defined in HTML5- must be corrected
as following:

- the third step in algorithm for extracting the /areas/ must say:
"If the /map/ contains only one or more _area_ element, collect all those, else
collect all _a_ element descendant of the having both a valid _shape_ and
_coords_ attribute. The collected elements are the /areas/"
(compatible with the requirement in HTML4.01)

Then all furhter references to the area element must be removed from that
