(Meant: The live image map example should use the same text as the 
example code.)

The same goes for the @href attribute of both <area> elements. 
Currently the value of both is "#", which means that there are two 
identical URLs - which is is a problem in itself. (For instance, I just 
happened to notice that Lynx then will delete the first link as it 
apparently considers that it is an authoring error to have two 
identical URLs in an image map.)
