    Hi paack,

    Is this part of the same homework problem?

    Just so you know:  an image map is not the same thing as changing an image when a mouse is over the image...

    An image map is a single image with "hotspots" defined by using the polygon tool on the Properties bar to define clickable areas.

    A rollover image involves embedding two images in the same area of the page and using javascript to switch them based on the mouse behavior.

    Since this is a homework assignment per your admission, we can guide and offer advice in a limited manner but you will need to do the majority of this on your own.

    Just FYI, I'm going to ask the Moderators to change this to a B grade.  I know you're not happy with me but we both need to abide by the Membership Agreement and the part about helping with school projects applies here.
