Request for feedback: Navigating image maps


From: Chaals McCathie Nevile

Hi folks,

I presume that image maps are something people don't find often - but
there are a number of things about them that are unclear.

1. Do you meet them anywhere on the web today?

2. Do you know of cases where one image map is applied to two images -
e.g. one at the top and another at the bottom of a page?

3. If the answer to 2 is yes, do you care whether you go through them
twice, i.e. each time you meet the image, or once, where the actual `map`
is in the HTML source?
