I am facing a problem in mapping an action in my form.Actually,my form contains 2 hyperlinks(say h1,h2) and an image (say img1)and a submit button.
If I click the submit button the form has to perform an action say "loginaction.do" .If I click the link h1 then it has to perform some other action "enrollaction.do" If I click h2 or img1 I should perform the same action (say "activate.do")
for the hyper link h1 I coded it as
<html:link action"enrollaction.do">text</html:link>
For the image ideally it should be written as
<html:link action"activate.do"><img src../></html:link>

But the problem is the image I have is a huge one and I have a logo on the image.only that part of the image should act as a hyperlink.
so I used a map tag like

<img src="\images\activate_bttn.gif" width=254 height=48 usemap="#Map1">
<map name="myMap" id="Map1">
<area shape="rect" coords="30,10,150,40" href=" ActivationPage.html" alt="Activate Now" />

This works fine with HTML as such but how should I give an action attribute
to the <map> or is there any alternative to do this.
Only particular portion of the image should be clickable and it should perform some action.
Please help me!!
