That is not possible. FP98 isn't good enough. First you have to give him a script and then you have to make the script working at each pictures...

You can do it in the source. (By hand)
<img src="picture.gif border="0" usemap="#testing">
<map name="testing">
  <area shape="rect" coords="18,7,55,12" href="#" onmouseover="alert('Over')" onmouseout="alert('Out')">
</map>

Thanks for your help.  I did have a script similar to this, but when I opened the page in Front Page 98, it wiped it out, inserting in its place a Front Page webbot image map.  I have since replaced the image map with some Javascript.

If you put the onmouseover and onmouseout by hand into the source, FP98 will wipe it out when you publiscche the page, because he didn't make it.

In FP98 you can't add any onmouseover's and onmouseout's.
So what you have to do is:
1. publische the correct page.
2. Open it in Notepad
3. Make the changes
4. Save it
5. AND DO NOT OPEN IT ANY MORE IN FP!!!


TIP: FP is your worse nightmare!!! Try to use Dreamweaver because this one can add onmouseover's and onmouseout's (but also not to an imagemap!!)

You may want to try a program like, fireworks, this will help you create the mouseovers, using a GUI.  You can download a 30 day trial from www.macromedia.com  At this site you can also download a trial version of Dreamweaver 3, which is much better than FrontPage and make mouseovers easy.
