You really need to have redundent text links for all the AREA
links, since none of the major browsers will render ALT text
for AREA defined image hot spots, when images are turned off.
This is important for people with low vision, who do not use
screen readers or magnifiers.
Try using the Opera browser (http://www.opera.com) and
toggling off images (G key). It is the easiest browser to
toggle off images.
