Creating a Client-Side Image Map

Image maps link the areas of an image with a series of URLs so that a click in a particular area brings the user to the corresponding page. There are two kinds of image maps, client-side and server-side (see page 132). Client-side image maps run more quickly because they are interpreted in your visitors’ browsers and don’t have to consult the server for each click. In addition, since they do not require a CGI script, they are simpler to create, and you don’t need to get permission (or help) from your Internet service provider. Only very old browsers may not understand them.
