Would you use a 32-bit RGB value? Would the link be followed on only those pixels with that value, or pixels close to that value? How close? (I'm thinking about high colour depth images) What about images with 48-bit colour, or 8-bit colour? What about images that use a CMYK colour scheme instead of RGB? These are a few questions that pop to my mind. I must agree with most of the discussion on this issue. Because colour changes so much from image format to image format, and pixels basically remain constant (except for vector based images), this is better handled by a software package that produces the appropriate <AREA> maps for whatever purpose and what ever image the creator wants. -- Russell O'Connor | email@example.com <http://www.undergrad.math.uwaterloo.ca/%7Eroconnor/> "And truth irreversibly destroys the meaning of its own message" -- Anindita Dutta, "The Paradox of Truth, the Truth of Entropy"
