Internet Explorer XP "Blind" To Image Map Transparent Buttons

I have an image map with transparent buttons overlaid on key words, triggering scripts.

The buttons work very well in IWP on any Mac OS browser and on Firefox with Windows. But they don’t work at all with Internet Explorer 6 or 7 on Windows XP.

If I give the transparent buttons a, for example, visible blue border, the buttons work fine in IE. But it is very ugly and defeats the point of a nice image map.

Does anyone have any hints on how I might keep my buttons transparent and yet have IE see the buttons and work with the underlying scripts?

Thanks,

David

I had something similar to this and I ended up using a transparent gif as my button. I just created a gif in Photoshop and made the whole thing transparent. Place this transparent gif on top of your image in IWP and you should be able to click on it but not see it.
