ImageReady can create client-side and server-side image maps. In client-side image maps, the links are interpreted by the browser itself. In server-side image maps, the links are interpreted by the server. Because client-side image maps don't need to contact the server to function, they are often significantly faster to navigate. By default, ImageReady saves image maps as client-side image maps.
Important: Server-side image maps do not work in images that have multiple slices.
You select an image map type in the Output Settings dialog box. (See "Setting HTML output options" on page 442.) If you select a server-side image map, ImageReady generates a separate map file based on the server option you select. However, you'll need to update the path to the map file in your HTML file.
