Re: Error [127]: "required attribute X not
 Address of the document you were

That is

To be specific, the error is:

 "        Line 156, Column
18:         required attribute "id" not


       The attribute given above is
required for an element that you've used,       but you have omitted it.
For instance, in most HTML and XHTML document       types the
"type" attribute is required on the "script" element
and the       "alt" attribute is required for the
"img" element.     

       Typical values for type
are        type="text/css" for
<style>       and
type="text/javascript" for


But what is wrong with my syntax? 
I've got alt tags, shapes and coordinates and self-closed all the area
tags.  I get this error all the time when I check my pages on your
site, and finally decided to ask you about it -- I checked your page here
and it's exactly the way I write my map tags...right?  What am I
missing here?
