    JS Graphics coding requirement

    Folks, I have been in IT for many years, but completely new to javascripting and ajax etc. I develop web sites and the php, html coding etc is no issue, its just that I have never needed to do any javascript coding and therefore have not used it at all.
    Picking it up should present little problem, but as of this moment, I am a complete tyro, and I need to get moving on this requirement ASAP.

    I have a requirement which I haver never before needed to address.

    I would be grateful for some pointers to resources (I have searched and searched..... ) which I could use to develop the functionality I need.

    After that rambling intro, here is the actual issue.....

    I need to have a variety of areas on a single picture on the website, each of which if clicked on, will go to a different article.

    Rather than try to explain, here is a link which does a similar thing, although this one is in Flash (which I also don't know): http://www.comcare.gov.au/virtual_wo...fice/reception

    I need to do pretty much the same thing, though with a different picture and words of course.

    The website will be a Joomla based site.

    I hope I have gived enough information, and indeed, hope that I have posted to the right area!

    Any assistance or thoughts at all would be greatly appreciated.

    regards to all,
    Mike

    Google for Javascript image maps, e.g.

    Wonderful!!!!

    Philip, thank you so much for your reply.

    I had googled everything except the term "image map".

    This pointed me in a good direction. I think I will be able to get this done.

    Still open to all suggestions though :-) :-) :-) , considering my kindergarden level of knowledge on this subject.

    Thanks yet again
