A tileset is an object (of kind thing, to be precise) that defines the essential information needed for printing an image-map using a list of numbers. Declaring a tileset is simple:
The Glimmr Automap Tileset is a tileset.
A tileset has only a couple of parameters. The most important is the "translation table". The translation table relates an arbitrary number to a figure name:
The Glimmr Automap Tileset is a tileset. The translation-table is the Table of Automap Tiles.

The two remaining properties of a tileset describe the dimensions of the tiles. These should (but strictly need not) reflect the actual dimensions of the image files in the tileset. The dimension properties are "tile-width" and "tile-height":
The tile-width of the Glimmr Automap Tileset is 25.
The tile-height of the Glimmr Automap Tileset is 25.
