jmootips and Image Maps

jmootipsIn HTML and XHTML, an image map is a list of coordinates relating to a specific image, created in order to hyperlink areas of the image to different destinations (as opposed to a normal image link, in which the entire area of the image links to a single destination). For example, a map of the world may have each country hyperlinked to further information about that country. The intention of an image map is to provide an easy way of linking various parts of an image without dividing the image into separate image files.

In HTML an image map is made of the actual image, that is embedded with the <img>-tag. The image has to be assigned the attribute "usemap".
The image map comprise a <map>-tag and in the detail of the <area>-tags, which defines the fields with optional weblinks. These are similar to the <a>-Tag defining which URL should be opened.

A Sample of Image Map below:

<img src="/images/stories/lakes.jpg" alt="" width="450" height="339" border="0" usemap="#Map" />
<map name="Map" id="Map">
 <area shape="rect" coords="120,85,156,118" nohref alt="Lake Superior" />
 <area shape="rect" coords="142,206,179,237" href="##" alt="Lake Michigan" />
