This bug is invalid, I think. This map does not have name attribute (http://www.w3.org/TR/1999/REC-html401-19991224/struct/objects.html#h-13.6): name CDATA #REQUIRED -- for reference by usemap -- So this example should be fixed (<map id="mymap" name="mymap">).
what you linked, state that map does have a map attribute. but the link is to the html 4.0 TR. the document is written in xhtml. where name is illegal, and as such, I use id: http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/#h-4.10 (the html validates, and, I think correct) anyway, onmousemove works, and onmouseout doesn't. (yes I know, new bug report, well, if this is confirmed, I'll file the onmouseout)
Oh, thanks, I miss XML part. You could consult bug 109445 about this stuff. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 109445 ***
well, I didn't know, that turning the page into valid XHTML actually ran into another bug. I changed the map and gave it a name, and it now works again. but it doesn't change that some events dont fire. maybe it's related to the other, but I think it's distinctly different. anyway, I added an onmousemove event to the green area, and that fires. while the onmouseover still does not.
I produced a new test case, html strict: http://home.svendtofte.com/misc/mozillamap/index2.html the bug as originally reported, is still in effect.
Well, there is another bug 110072 (onMouseOver/onMouseOut event problems with image maps). Seems, that you second example duped this one.
you are correct :)
