[thelist] Calling JS from an image map?

It's been about 7 years since I played with an image map, so forgive
my ignorance. I want to call a javascript function from an area in a
map. There doesn't appear to be a way to attach an event to that area
(unless I've missed it) although doing javascript: function(); seems
to work in the HREF.

I'd rather not do it that way if there is a better way. This little
application requires JS to function, so it's not so much that I'm
using JS (that's fine) it's just showing the js psuedo-link in the
status bar. 

I'd rather get a alt popup with the value they are clicking on. Any
tips are appreciated.
