Access: [1.2.1.1]: image map (server-side) requires text links (Priority 1)

Cause:

All server-side image maps must include redundant text links. Alt text is not available with server-side image maps unless redundant text links have been created. Redundant text links should describe the destination of each link (i.e. Home Page, Search Engine, etc.) rather than the actual image. If the map itself requires a explanation, use the "longdesc" attribute (and accompanying d-link) to provide a more detailed description.

Example:

Bad
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd">
<html lang="en">
<head>
<title>aert1.0/1.2.1</title>
</head>
<body>
<a href="myhouse.map">
<img ismap alt="server-side imagemap" width="400" height="250" src="myhouse.gif">
</a>
</body>
</html>
