Yes it is - for well designed pages anyway.  On the best pages I've always
seen a text alternative to an imagemap or button bar.  It is also polite
to those who may have turned off image loading for a fast load if they're
looking for something.

Although I work for Livingston Enterprises Technical Support, I alone am
responsible for everything contained herein.  So don't waste my managers'
time bitching to them if you don't like something I've said.  Flame me.
