Basically they tell you to just not resize the image with height and width
tags.  The ones I've seen just return the coords where you clicked - no
processing on them.

And since, IMHO, using the height and width tags to habitually resize
images is dumb, I like this since it prevents such use on an imagemap.

Forcing people to author their images at the appropriate size is a *good*
thing as far as I am concerned.  And since image resizing isn't supported
on all browsers it is a bad habit.  I use heighth and width to speed 
rendering by setting the actual size.
