In this article, we will learn how to set the language of the target URL in HTML5.

The task can be done by using the hreflang attribute while using the <area> tag. This property contains the value i.e languageCode which represents the two-letter code of the linked document language. 

Note: If the target document is in English then en is passed as the value.

Syntax:

<area hreflang="language_code">

Example:  The following code also uses the HTML map tag.

HTML




<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <body style="text-align: center">
    <img
      src=
      alt="Geeks_logo"
      width="200"
      height="100"
      usemap="#gfg"
      border="4px solid green"
    />
  
    <map name="gfg">
      <area
        shape="ellipse"
        coords="100,49,50,30"
        href="https://www.geeksforgeeks.org/"
