CSS World Map Rollover

CSS code in acion:

Description: I made the UK rollover map last year and thought that it was about time the internet had a descent CSS rollover world map... well here it is.
Before I start getting emails, I know that this map is geologically inaccurate but it was the best map that I could find to use for this example. It is impossible to use the sliding doors technique with this example. To avoid slow down upon rollover you could use javascript to preload the images in the HEAD section of the code.

When creating the map on my website, i am struggling to get the roll over effect to work. i.e. the continents will not highlight when you hover over each one. How would i go about making this work?

Thanks for your response. This is an example of the possibilities of CSS image swap. This website has not at any point described the areas in this example as continents. As described in the "Description" this map is geologically inaccurate. Although six out of seven regions on this map are continents, the relevancy of this fact is quashed as it is still just an example of the CSS image swap.

If any offense has been caused to anyone from this example then it will be removed if I receive enough feedback. I will also be willing to remove Pluto from:


because apparently Pluto is not considered a planet anymore, just a very big bit of rock floating in space. Although you felt it not applicable to pick me up on that one.

Many Thanks and sorry for any inconvenience.

Greate, but information is incorrect. There is no continent called middle east. Even as a region Afganistan, Pakistan does not belong to Middle East. It looks like you are trying to limit Muslims in to Middle East. That's wrong.

Ive tried this effect using stylesheets but given up due to compatability... this seems to work cross browser though. Many Thanks

Wow! Didnt realise that this kind of effect was achievable with CSS. I found this page ranked no 1 with google for rollover world map. It looks and works great! There are some great other css effects on this site, well worth surfing! Try Divine CSS for more great css resources.
