thank for your help James, but why map shouldn't be there? 

why this is not a question for accessibility guys? 

i am want to know if some reader can understand this:

<map tittle="Navigation Map">.. 

to permit skip it.

I use map tag to group a set ogf links (this is a 6.2 item's example
"Grouping and bypassing links" from Html techniques for Web Accessibility
Guidelines 1.0)

Everything looks right except for the <map> tags. Those shouldn't be 
there. Try looking up unordered lists instead (<ul>)...

That aside, this message is off the topic of accessibility and would be 
better suited for an HTML help list or a general web dev help list like 

Good luck,

PS. As a pre-emptive avoidance, the W3C HTML list is not the appropriate 
  place for this either.
