|2554||Adding retrospective ALT attributes to IMG|
You'll find this is article number 2554 on this blog ... with article number 1 written as long ago as 5th August 2004.

|847||Image maps for navigation - a straightforward example|
Image maps can be a really simple and effective way of selecting from a series of options - a little bit more flexible that straightforward HTML links. We use an image map on every one of of main "Well House Consultants" pages - click on any on the languages named in our banner, and you'll be taken ...
