Yes, I still use image maps. They are nifty, and don’t require Flash to pull off things like interactive maps. But suppose you are trying to add 70ish links to an image map and Dreamweaver insists on prompting you EVERY SINGLE TIME to add an ALT tag. Before you slit your wrists or kill your computer, there is hope. This can quite easily be disabled by:
Go to Edit menu > Preferences > Accessibility > and remove checkmark from the Images box.
This is not to suggest you should ignore accessibility, just that you don’t have to have Dreamweaver drill it into your skull 70 times to get the point across.
