In Opera and IE, you'll see beginend. In Firefox quirks mode, you'll
see the same. In Firefox standards mode, you'll see:

The default style applied to the map element varies between browser
and rendering mode.

Someone once pointed out to me that even if the map element has a
content model of block, that doesn't mean it should have a default
style of block applied to it. That is a css  issue though.

Anyway, yeh, if you put stuff inside map, it takes up space except for
<area> and <param> etc.
