Image maps - Do You Even See Them Anymore?

    I remember when image maps where cool! Then I "converted" to web standards
    (and SEO) and found them horribly inaccessible and SE UNfriendly. But ALA
    has a great article on "modern" CSS image maps - with the use of standards-based
    XHTML and CSS, which which you apply a (low bandwidth) background image
    and AP (Absolute Positioning) to create a map.

    So, anyone use image maps anymore?

    Image maps are scripted and I am pretty confident when i say that the major SEs don't follow them. They also produce bloated code.

    So that's 2 reasons for a start why I won't use them
