The HTML Attribute reference

"ismap" - html Attribute

  • Server-side image maps may be interesting in cases where the image map is too complicated for a client-side image map.
  • It is only possible to define a server-side image map for the IMG and INPUT elements. In the case of IMG, the IMG must be inside an A element and the boolean attribute ismap ([CI]) must be set. In the case of INPUT, the INPUT must be of type "image".

Value(s): ismap

Attribute "ismap" example:
<html>
  <body>
    <form name="myform" action="#" target='_top' >
      <input type="image" name="Trophy"
             src="images/Trophy.png"/>
    </form>
    <a href="#" target='_top' >
      <img  src="images/Trophy.png" border="0"
