This message is in regards to a recent validation I did on my page
mentioned below.

http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http://boundarymuseum.com/BoundaryMuseum.html&charset=(detect+automatically)&doctype=Inline&group=0&user-agent=W3C_Validator/1.654

http://boundarymuseum.com/BoundaryMuseum.html

I received multiple errors regarding a JavaScript parameter issue over
the missing attribute alternate text (alt), I regret to see or
understand the concept, as I'm simply passing a parameter and not
actually using XHTML, other then in the following lines:

<map name="HomeMap" id="HomeMap">
      <area shape="rect" coords="0,0,80,27" href="javascript:;"
onmouseout="MM_menuStartTimeout(250); MM_swapImgRestore();"
onmouseover="MM_menuShowMenu('MMMenuContainer0123135403_3',
'MMMenu0123135403_3',163,162,'HomeMap');
MM_swapImage('Home','','./Templates/images/button_home_over.jpg',1); "
/>
    </map>

The problem appears to be
MM_swapImage('Home','','./Templates/images/button_home_over.jpg',1);

Which shouldn't have anything to do with validation, otherwise all my
JavaScript should else fail for not using proper
spacing...punctuation... well, you get the point.
