Hello I'm using FrontPage 98 and I have and image on this image I want to put a region of the image that cause the browser to go back (like the person hit the back button).

I have and image map defined for the image, but I don't know how to make it go back.  Also there is another place that I want to make the browse go back twice (like the person hit the back button twice).  

If you could please help in answering on or both of these questions.

You really cannot go "back",
because you don't really know how the user got to your page.
(S)he could have "bookmarked" your page, a while ago,
and, today, have visited 'WWW.NEWS.COM' and then exercised
the bookmark to get to your page. So, 'back' to the user
is a "return" to 'WWW.NEWS.COM' -- the previous page (s)he looked at.

All you can do is create a hyper-link to some other page
of yours, and hope that it is the "previous" page which
the user accessed,
i.e., user accesses 'page1.html',
and exercises a link to 'page2.html',
and exercises a link to 'page1.html'.

Nevertheless, it is the "correct" answer,
namely that "it cannot be done".

Your wrong because I just finished doing it.  At least well enough for my project py passing the state of where in the web structure I was in the QueryString.  Then I used ASP pages to dynamically make the links.

use this to go back one page...

<IMG SRC = "back.gif" onClick="javascript:top.history.back();">

That will do it once.
