The image map below does not work in IE7 (but works in IE8+)I searched online for this and know a little bit of the reason that it might be because of IE7 not reading setAttribute properly and thus I relied on the use img.useMap instead of img.setAttribute("usemap","#map")Can anyone provide a simple fix? Many thanks!

<script>window.onload = function(){var img = document.createElement("img");img.setAttribute("src","http://prodesigntools.com/img/adobe-cs5-icons.jpg");img.style.width = 1000+"px";img.style.height = 1000+"px";img.useMap = "#map";document.body.appendChild(img);var map = document.createElement("map");map.name = "map";map.innerHTML = "<area shape='rect' coords='0,0,500,500' href='javascript: alert(0)' /><area shape='rect' coords='500,0,1000,500' href='javascript: alert(1)' />"document.body.appendChild(map);}</script>

No, the IE console doesn't show any error but I know IE7 does not process setAttribute properly.I need to make an image gallery with XML parsing the data. So I prefer JS to generate HTML instead of having the HTML tags and insert data.

I've found a site where somebody like me creating the image map thru JS and coming across the same trouble (caused by the stupid IE): http://www.codingforums.com/showthread.php?t=144690

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd"><html>  <head>    <title>Hello</title>	  <script type='text/javascript'>	    window.onload = function(){   	 img = document.createElement("img");	 img.setAttribute("src", "http://prodesigntools.com/img/adobe-cs5-icons.jpg");	 img.setAttribute("useMap", "#m-1-1");	 img.setAttribute("alt", "");	 document.body.appendChild(img);  	 var imgmap = document.createElement("map");	 imgmap.setAttribute("id", "m-1-1");	 imgmap.setAttribute("name", "m-1-1");   	 var area = document.createElement("area");	 area.setAttribute("alt", "");	 area.setAttribute("href", "http://www.about.com");	 area.setAttribute("shape", "circle");	 area.setAttribute("coords", "20,20,10");	  imgmap.appendChild(area);	 document.body.appendChild(imgmap); 	    }	  </script>    </head>  <body>  </body></html>

I've compared the code with my code and also summed up some points about using image map.It seems that without the id set for the image map in JS, IE7 cannot read it.It's only IE7- problem.

But now another problem. IE7 is really d*** a nuisance!!!I've tried so many ways to get rid of the ugly outline around the area tag.Any fix for that, guys? Many thanks for any reply! I'm desperate...

It doesn't have to do with the order of creating elements in JS in this case of IE.

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd"><html>  <head>    <title>Hello</title>	  <script type='text/javascript'>	    window.onload = function(){   	 img = document.createElement("img");	 document.body.appendChild(img);	 img.setAttribute("src", "http://prodesigntools.com/img/adobe-cs5-icons.jpg");	 img.setAttribute("useMap", "#m-1-1");	 img.setAttribute("alt", "");  img.className = "img";  	 var imgmap = document.createElement("map");	 document.body.appendChild(imgmap); 	 imgmap.setAttribute("id", "m-1-1");	 imgmap.setAttribute("name", "m-1-1");   	 var area = document.createElement("area");  imgmap.appendChild(area); 	 area.setAttribute("alt", "");	 area.setAttribute("href", "#");	 area.setAttribute("shape", "rect");	 area.setAttribute("coords", "0,0,400,400");  area.className = "map"; 	    }	  </script><style>.map area {  outline: none;}.img {width: 600px;height: 200px;}</style>    </head>  <body>  </body></html>

I've reordered it as ya said, but the ugly outline still comes out when I click the image map area. I've tried to css set the area like

area {outline: 0;outline: none;border: 0;border: none;}

All attempts failed.

No, I was saying that the map itself works fine in IE7+,but the point is that even it works in IE7,the ugly image outline (once the map is clicked) appears in IE7 (but NOT in IE8+)In FF, it does not appear either. I've used the "border: none" to try to get rid of the ugly image border but it failed.
