Hi all.
I have encountered the map element inside html page, but I don't understand
what it is. something like :
<MAP name="map1">
<P>Navigate the site:
<A href="guide.html" shape="rect" coords="0,0,118,28">Access Guide</a> |
<A href="shortcut.html" shape="rect" coords="118,0,184,28">Go</A> |
<A href="search.html" shape="circle" coords="184,200,60">Search</A> |
<A href="top10.html" shape="poly" coords="276,0,373,28,50,50,100,120">Top Ten</A><
can some one explain it to me ??
