I have some class hierarchy in PHP, with namespaces. Generated inheritance diagrams link to particular classes in FF 23 and IE 10 but not in newest Chrome. Part of HTML source:

When I made the "name" attribute identical to "id", classes became clickable on the image.

  • Did the changed version also work under the newest FF (as far as I know 49, 23 seems quite old already) and IE 10?
  • What happens when you replace the backslash characters () by forwards slashes (/) with all 3 mentioned browsers?

Can you please attach a (small) self-contained example (source+config file in a tar or zip) that allows us to reproduce the problem?

According to , Chrome uses the "name" attribute while others use "id". Ergo, attributes should be identical.

If I copy "id" to "name" (both become urlencoded), then the map is clickable in FF 49 and 23, IE 10 and 8, Chrome 54. No idea why you need to keep slashes in "name".

If I copy "name" to "id" (both contain slashes), convert backslashes to forward slashes and update the corresponding "usemap" attribute, then links work in all browsers above. Without the conversion Chrome still ignores the map.

Also my favorite text editor highlights any kind of slashes in "id" as invalid characters. Looks like they are allowed only in HTML5-compliant source (
