Using the content editor to create hotspots on images in SharePoint

I recently created some portal pictures for the Teacher, Student, and
Parent. I placed the pictures in a content type web part, and made the hotspots
in the old fashion way using html.

Here was my rudimentary code.

<img width=”350″ height=”540″
alt=”ParentPortal.bmp”
src=”/Picture%20Library/Parent%20Portal.bmp”
usemap=”#ParentPortal”/> <map
name=”ParentPortal”><area href=”https://mail.padua.qld.edu.au/owa
shape=”rect” coords=”0,35,335,130″ alt=”Email and
Calendar”/><area href=”/Assesment/default.aspx”
shape=”rect” coords=”10,190,160,215″ alt=”Read Student
Notices”/><area
href=”/curriculum/Assessment_Calendar/default.aspx” shape=”rect”
coords=”10,220,160,240″ alt=”Assessment
Calendar”/><area href=”/Co_Curr/Sport/default.aspx”
shape=”rect” coords=”10,245,160,265″ alt=”AIC Venue
Information”/><area href=”/Co_Curr/Sport/default.aspx”
shape=”rect” coords=”10,270,160,295″ alt=”Sports News”/><area
href=”http://explore.live.com/windows-live-skydrive/
shape=”rect” coords=”10,330,335,430″ alt=”My Online
Files”/><area href=”http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/live-meeting//
shape=”rect” coords=”10,435,335,520″ alt=”Start Live
Meeting”/></map>

Fortunately there is a better way of creating hotspots on sharepoint 2010
images.

See Doug Hemmingers blog, on creating hotspots using sharepoint designer.
