error with MAP

I'm using MAP for a navigation bar, as suggested by one of the web
accessibility sites.

Here is my code:

<!-- Navigation Bar -->
<MAP title="Navigation Bar">
<P CLASS="navbar">[<a href="toc.htm">Contents</a>] [<a
href="question1.htm">Question 1</a>] [<a href="question3.htm">Question
3</a>] [<a href="glossary.htm">Glossary</a>]</p>

However, I get this error when validating the code:

<MAP title="Navigation Bar">
Error: required attribute "NAME" not specified

Where did I go wrong? Should title be NAME?

This is rather urgent as the Simplified Web Accessibility Guide goes to
print today. Help.
