Hi there,

Anyone care to comment about the following:

<AREA [[SHAPE="shape"] COORDS="x,y,..." | COLOR="color"]
[HREF="reference"] [NOHREF]>

Basically, if a user clicks on a certain color, they could be
transported to a URL via the HREF element. This would be especially
useful for polygons that have only one color. For example, a thematic
map of the US, where each state has its own color would not require a
polygon overlay of the shapes of all of the states.

Thanks for any input (or passing this on to people who can make this
happen!).
