Hi Glenda,

I suggest using DIV. MAP is a tag for image maps; you have a simple text
navigation bar. I'm sure MAP probably won't hurt, but I don't think this
was the intention of the MAP tag.

You can use TITLE attribute with the DIV:

<DIV 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>
</DIV>

What is the reason for using MAP? Which site did you find that on? I'm
curious why that was suggested.

Joel
