Anyway, for modern computers (anything with more than 8 bits), the naive  
linear search through the list of rectangles is more than fast enough for 
image map purposes.  If it's big enough to run IP, you don't need to do 
anything.

Of course, if I can persuade some grad students to do the web browser for 
pixelflow, quadtrees and the like will be more useful... Well add a 
dimension, but you know what I mean :-)
