Please help with hot spot link

I have an image with hotspots using Dreamweaver 8.  I am trying to open a new window.  This code works fine without an area map, but falls to pieces when I"m trying to use the image map.  I need to open a new window.

Without the image map, here is the code working fine.  I don't know how to adjust this.

do I

      put part or all of this in front of the <area shape="rect" coords="1,1,233,167" href="#">  (I wouldn't think so, since there is a place for href=)

do I

    have to leave off quotes or other such parts?    

I'm having trouble knowing if I need single quotes, double quotes etc.  In fact, I think I need an example.  


I did try using Behaviors just now.  I did get a window to open, but it opens before a click (just on rollover - which is not so terrible but I prefer a click) but the rest of the samples I have, such as the code given, open it at the top left on the browser window.  This opens the window right in the middle - not acceptable for this project.



Here is the code that works without an image map (such as highlighting and then linking text)

<a href='javascript:var deliverywin=window.open("filename.html","deliverywin","width=523,height=540,top=0,left=0 ,resizable=no,scrollbars=no,no")'></a>

Please, if you don't mind, could someone create the entire code sequence using the area shape co-ordinates as a sample.  Thank you

Hi linque,

It may be easier on all of us if you post a link to the page in question, but here goes:

<area shape="rect" coords="1,1,233,167" href='javascript:var deliverywin=window.open("filename.html","deliverywin","width=523,height=540,top=0,left=0 ,resizable=no,scrollbars=no,no")'>

Rouchie, if you are checking tonight/tomorrow, please take a look at the above...
