    Question Blank status bar with image maps?

    Hi, newbie alert! I'm trying to get rid of the link details in the status bar that appears when the mouse is over an image map. I tried using the two scripts on the JavaScriptKit website, which work with everything other than image maps. Any suggestions welcome, especially really, really straightforward ones
    TIA

    Something like this

    <area shape="rect" coords="34,136,70,177" href="mypage.html" onMouseOver="window.status='.'">

    will hide the actual url, you will see a . in the status bar.

    Unhappy

    OK, I tried that, but it didn't work, what am I doing wrong? Is it something to do with the frames? There's two frames, a top one, with the image map, and a lower one, where the linked page loads. The url still appears. Thanks for your help.

    Hmm.. that works for me.

    What browser are you using? Is there a javascript error on the page that might be stopping any other scripts from working?

    Do you have a sample of the image map area tags?
