HTML image map – Image Maps part 2
Some important points to remember when designing Image Maps
- The image used as a map should be large enough so that the users’ cursor is not confined in a small place with lots of links.
- It is recommended that the <MAP> tag along with its <AREA>s is placed at the end of the HTML document.
- Use client-side maps unless most of your audience is using older browsers that support only server-side maps. There are many benefits in using the map on the client, especially performance.
Adobe Flash had humble beginnings in a drawing program called SmartSketch before the onset of WWW. This application was ported to Windows and Mac to create animations that could run on web pages. This new product was called FutureSplash Animator.
