RE: error with MAP

Use of MAP provides structural information that a collection of links are
related. The benefit of using MAP is that in the future browsers can
include functions for people to directly navigate (move focus to) or skip
the links contained in a MAP element. Similar to using headers.

Use NAME instead of TITLE to label the collection of links.
