Many thanks for your correction Joe.
I agree that perhaps I should not have been speculating but without my
speculation, did anyone else comment on whether Lynx can use image maps or
not. Not many people use/have Lynx (despite the fact that it is a free
download) so my speculation led to valuable information.
Perhaps Joe, you could comment on the apparent contradiction between WCAG
1.1 and 1.5 where 1.1 recommends alt text for image map hotspots and 1.5
recommends text links equivalent to the image map hotspots.
