Creating Image Maps

An image map is a graphic with a number of hyperlinks associated with the graphic that lead to different places within a Web site. Image maps are usually used for navigational purposes and are quite time-consuming to code by hand. In Figure 16.14, a Web page with a map of Oregon is used to determine the location the user is interested in.

TIP

Image maps are also pretty much pointless for any browser that can't support images and image maps. If you are going to use image maps as a navigational element, remember to also include a navigational option for browsers that won't support the technology.
