Creating Image Maps

In the previous exercise, you experienced how easy it is to apply a link to an image. The user can click any part of the image to go to the linked page. You also have the option of dividing the image into several linked areas called hotspots by using an image map to place individual hotspots on the image. These hotspots are not limited to rectangles; they can have other shapes. In the following exercise, you will add a rectangular hotspot and a circular hotspot.

Conceptually, image maps work quite well when applied to geographical maps; however, you can apply an image map to any image regardless of what that image represents.
