Another interesting test to add is a reference to a map on the current 
page, but specified using a URI instead of just a map name. Two examples:

<p><img src="w3c_main" usemap="thisdocument.html#map3">
<map id="map3" name="map3">
 <area coords="0,0,100,48" href="http://www.w3.org/" alt="W3C">
 <area coords="101,0,315,48" href="http://www.w3.org/Consortium/">
</map>
</p>

and

<p><img src="w3c_main" usemap="http://www.thisdomain.ch/thisdocument.html#map3">
<map id="map3" name="map3">
 <area coords="0,0,100,48" href="http://www.w3.org/" alt="W3C">
 <area coords="101,0,315,48" href="http://www.w3.org/Consortium/">
</map>
</p>


This will test the ability of the browser to resolve URI values but not 
to a different page.
