View Full Version : image maps not visible

Hi,

I'm an absolute beginner to html and have struck a problem with an image map.

The map shows electoral voting districts and was created using the image map filter in gimp - works fine if it's the only thing on a page.
But when I try to put it into an existing page with other elements, the image frame appears in the right place but the image itself is not visible.
Oddly enough, when you mouse over the blank image map the pointer changes to signify a link in the appropriate places and clicking will take you to the right place.

Have this problem in Firefox 2 and Konqueror. I'm assuming it's something I'm doing wrong, but after searching google I'm at a loss.

The page is not published yet, so can't provide a link - would it help to provide screenshots or html code? can do both if required.

Any help would be much appreciated!

Cheers,

Blair

Okay, I feel really stupid... think it was just a matter of the image path being incomplete.
Sorry to have wasted anyones time.
