Edit your HTML to look like this it should work like a charm
I use Netscape and it works really nice for me. basically your
HTML format is a little bit off


<AREA SHAPE="CIRCLE" COORDS="48,218,26" HREF="try.html">

<AREA SHAPE="CIRCLE" COORDS="106,218,26" HREF="try2.html">


note the use of quotation marks for the Map name
and the area tag and you didn't end your map tag corectly
just like all aother tags you must open and close tags like this
<HTML>  this is an example of opening a tag
</HTML> this is an example of closing a tag
hope this solved your problem
