some help please
I am wondering if there is any way to include a htmlmap in an external Style Sheet. Its for a .jpg sidebar and it would be nice to have the coding on one page rather than all the pages.

Is it possible to use the image as background: and include the map connection?  

Is there css for image maps?

No, image maps are part of HTML, nothing to do with CSS. If you want a common image map on all your pages, you could use Server Side Includes, but that takes a bit of setting up.

Stuart Robertson wrote an article called the "Night of the Image Map"  that provides a discussion on how  to call  and control image maps from css --  am not sure if this is  what you are looking for but it may be worth a look.

The article can be found at

Yes, this will help. Though its still too bad image maps can't be linked to directly. Anyway thanks for the link JoAnn
