I can't really understand what's going on but my guess is that when you click a link it's supposed to open a page in the iframe below the banner image. You haven't even specified a name for that iframe nor are your hyperlinks (<area>) using the target attribute so what do you expect? Naturally, clicking them brings you to a new page like any normal link click. To get that effect you need to do something like:
<area target="magicframe" [...]/>
<iframe name="magicframe" [...]></iframe>
