imagemap

I feel kind of silly asking this, and I know Netscape has different imagemapping than internet explorer but I have tried what I think is everything and can't fix my imagemap can you help?  There is javascript used in the image map and I think that might be the problem, but I'm not sure...

here's my image:

<img src="images/nav.gif" width="272" height="184" alt="" border="0" usemap="#navi">



here's my image map:

<map name="navi">
<area alt="browse" coords="111,79,175,99" href="store.cgi" shape="RECT">
<area alt="my cart" coords="113,120,180,103" href="#" onClick="window.open('https://www.paypal.com/cart/display=1&business=mail@somewhere.com','paypal','width=400,height=350,scrollbars,location=no,resizable,status');">
<area alt="about" coords="118,137,173,121" href="javascript:onClick=new_window()">
<area alt="contact" coords="117,154,182,140" href="contact.php">
</map>

does that work? if not then try

<area alt="my cart" coords="113,120,180,103" href="javascript:window.open('https://www.paypal.com/cart/display=1&business=mail@somewhere.com','paypal','width=400,height=350,scrollbars,location=no,resizable,status');">

<area alt="about" coords="118,137,173,121" href="javascript:onClick=new_window()">

i think that should be

<area alt="about" coords="118,137,173,121" href="javascript:new_window();">

and do u have new_window() javascript somewhere in ur html code?

Thanks for catching those semi-colon and the javascript:window.open... thingies but it didn't work....
So far the only area that is clickable in netscape is <area alt="browse" coords="111,79,175,99" href="store.cgi" shape="RECT"> ... I'm using netscape 7 if that halps.  

I hate netscape. I wish they would be more like IE without the security holes.

The answer to my question is that the mapped areas were to close together.
I just had to make my clickable ares smaller which made them further apart from each other.
