I couldn`t find an explanation of the "Load server side image maps" options found under the "Advanced" properties dialog for a project. Can you explain?

Thanks,
Gerald

Well, this is a bit technical..., anyway - some pages may have <IMG SRC=http://.... ISmap> tag, which means that the server is responsible to detect the actual URL from clicked coordinates and pass the appropriate file. No URLs that correspond certain image areas contain in the HTML file itself. So, Offline Explorer "pings" the server sending it coordinates of each 10 pixels of the image and stores the received links.
