           Summary: Image map usemap attribute does not validate

Please visit the attached URL for a concise description and an example of this 

In a nutshell: The content of the "usemap" attribute in an image tag MUST 
begin with a "#" character in order for its associated image map to be 
functional. However, the code will NOT validate if the "#" character is 

Googling this problem has resulted in repeated claims that the validator is 
wrong, and that the code with the "#" is valid XHTML 1.1. Can you verify this 
for me, or, barring that, explain how to make the code both validate and 
function properly?

Thank you.
