Mel P.:-
Nice effect but a few questions...

Why use ems? Given that em may have a slightly higher weighting from an SEO pov, wouldn't it be better to use something a little more neutral? Span, for example?

Secondly, what benefits does this approach have over using a client side image map? My concern with this approach is that, in non-graphical browsers and screen readers, users will be presented with 100 'empty' links and that could present a usability issue.

Mel P. ems because they are quicker to type and they are ok with xhtml1.1 Your other question is sligtly more difficult, but I would think that if you were concerned about viewing this in a non-graphical browser then a little text explanation would be required and for screen readers the empty links could also be explained by using ' link titles'.

Mel P. added a little extra style so that the image will display when css is off.

<em><a href="#link"><img src="picture.jpg" width="100" height="100"></a></em> makes an image clickable for IE MACs, <span> instead of <em>s will prevent the image of being clickable if using CSS only

Ono, check the FAQs. All you get is the source code and stylesheet.
