FrontPage 98 ImageMap preview problems

I have created an ImageMap in FP98 (using hotspots - creates the following entry: <!--webbot bot="ImageMap") and when viewed within FP all is fine.  However, when I view the same page using any browser, the imagemap does not work; the image hotspots do not appear, hence no hyperlinks anywhere!  Any ideas why this could be?

This is because such a page must be viewed through a web server that is running the FP98 server extensions. The frontpage bot entries in your html file will be replaced by the server during a request.
What you can do is this:
In FrontPage Explorer, select the Web options menu item and look for the box in which you can select the image map style to be used. If you want to be sure, select NCSA in this box, then everything should work just fine.

Thanks for your quick response. I have done what you suggested but unfortunately it still does not work.  The prefix automatically comes up as "/cgi-bin/imagemap" and the check-box "Generate client-side image maps" is checked. Is this correct?

Just to expand on my particular situation... I use FP98 on a client machine to edit the web site which is held on an NT4.0 server with IIS ver 2 installed. The directory which holds the web site is set to home directory within IIS so people can browse the site by entering in an URL.

The check-box is correct, but I am not sure about the prefix. Unfortunately I do not have FP98 right here right now, but did you select the correct entrz in the drop down list box (there should be three or four, on of them being Netscape, the other one FrontPage ...)

Also, does the IIS ver 2 server have the server extensions 3.0 installed?
