Except that, as implemented, it provides none of the purported 
accessibility benefits, since clicking on an area of the client side map 
doesn't submit the form, it follows the hyperlink.  Submitting the form 
with a specific set of co-ordinates would be the only logical reason for 
wanting a client side image map on an input control designed for form 
submission.  If you want hyperlink image map, use img.
