Delaying Media -- the begin tag

To specify a delay i.e when to begin set the begin attribute parameter in an appropriate media tag:

If you add begin="2s" in the cardiff image tag, you will see that the Cardiff icon will appear 2 seconds after the document began and will remain during 6 other seconds. Have a look at the source:

  <img src="cardiff.gif" alt="The Cardiff icon"
        region="cardiff_icon" dur="6s" begin="2s" />
