At the moment the imagemap extension uses a hard coded information icon as link
to the image description page.
I propose to allow user-defined images as information icons too:
desc bottom-right [[Image:icon.png|20px]]
1. Nicer contrast dependent on the image
2. Projects with a non-latin script can use a character/sign in their script
(cyrillic, CJK, ...)
For this kind of UI element I'd strongly prefer to keep it consistent. I don't
see much reason for per-use customization in this way, and the per-language
issues would not be very well served by this.
I expect languages that don't use question marks might prefer a different icon.
It seems best to consider allowing different icons as part of i18n for the
extension. Per-use, maybe not.
There are two internationally used information symbols that are language
independent. The italic lower-case i on a blue background and the circle with a
question mark contained.
If there is a real need for alternative, language dependent versions, perhaps a
set of them should be distributed with the extension and a reference added to
the i18n file to convert from language to symbol - e.g.:
'en' => array(
'imagemap_icon' => 'desc-20.jpg', ...
'xx' => array(
'imagemap_icon' => 'xxdesc-20.jpg', ...
Something tells me the languages that would not recognize the "i" or ? symbols
as used in airports and such would be rare.
