Image maps in Mac Entourage not working

So we’re trying to get an email with one link from a image to work in Mac Entourage.

Wrapping entire image in an href tag works, but on a Mac the actual link is generated in text immediately following the image.

Using an image map alleviates the link showing but it also renders the link no good!

I just received an email from Digital Juice and there were multiple image maps within the email and they all worked in Entourage in Mac.

There was no DOC type but that didn’t work for us.

I’m guessing there is some kind of MIME setting that may be beyond our access to change, but wondered if anyone else knows anything?

The html is just placing the image, making the map so it’s tiny.

so the apparent issue is that images need to have an absolute path to avoid being forced as an attachment.
