image mapping - Hotspots
Posted on 2003-03-18
I am using Frontpage 98 (and i can't change software) and i am working on a page that shows the area around the school in map form. I have scanned in the map and pasted it into frontpage etc... but what i'd really like to do i make it an interactive map.
Basically i want to create several hotspots on the map itself (which are highlighted by transparent colours), from here, the user can hover or click on these and be presented with a dialog box which a small description of directions, and also a magnified view of that section.
I have played around with this, i know how to create hotspots but i do not know how to:
A. Make the hotspots more visible on the map, which some coloured highlighting and possibly numbered.
B. Make it so that when the user clicks the hotspot, it doesn't take them to another page (ideally i'd like a dialog box of some kind to show up when they hover over it. Alternatively, it will take them to the relevant section of a full description on the same page, but i don't know how i'd use bookmarks to do this as i've never used them before)
Like i said i am using frontpage 98, i can't use any other software.I have all the basic 98 era office stuff like photo editor. Any help appreciated. I have only 50 points to put on this question. thanks in advance
