[Bioperl-l] problems with image maps and IE 6 or higher

Hi Anh-Thu,

Could you send me a snippet of the code that is generating this imagemap? It
looks like you are relying on a javascript library for the zmenu() call, and
it may be that this library is in need of updating.

You might also consider replacing the library with Sheldon McKay's popup
balloon library, located at
