There a free FrontPage 2000 addin available at:
http://www.jimcoaddins.com/  called "Alt-text for Image Maps"; it's a
utility that makes it easy to add alt text for hotspots in image maps. 

We've been teaching state webmasters about it in our our web site
accessibility training classes.  It works really well.
