# Image map not working in IE (but works in firefox)?

Posted 01 November 2010 - 08:31 PM

Hello all,
Long time lurker, 1st time poster. Hopefully someone can help me with this issue I'm having; an image map on my page does not work in IE (any version I've tried), but works fine in firefox. The code is:

<p><img src="filmstripnew.jpg" alt="" usemap="#filmstrip2" height="700"
border="0" width="900"><map name="filmstrip2">
&gt;</map>
</p>
<p><a href="index.html"><img src="home.jpg" alt="" height="52"
border="0" width="126"></a></p>
</div>
<map name="filmstrip2">
<area title="if ya got the time..." shape="rect"
coords="214,638,718,670" href="reelfull.html"
alt="if ya got the time...">
<area title="for short attention spans..." shape="rect"
coords="200,334,722,365" href="reelshort.html"
alt="for short attention spans...">
</map>
</body>
</html>

I'm not the best web developer in the world & I'm at a loss. Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance!

I see your problem now, What you've done is you have two maps, You have one straight after the image, with content as "&gt" it is addressing that map first because it appears first and has the right name, If you rename that aspect or delete it, It should work fine.

Yes, I agree with Fungle. In your code you have two maps with the name/id of "filmstrip2". Now, I imagine you would want to delete the part of code where it says this:
<map name="filmstrip2">
&gt;</map>

This is not the actual map you would like. The other one is. Did this solve your problem?
