If you feel that most of your users do not have browsers that handle HTML-3 tables, you can tell the server to default to using fixed-pitch for its directory listings. Turn off the Use HTML3 tables switch on the Dir Listing tab of the server's property sheet. WebSite Pro ships with this switch enabled.

In contrast to most other known Web servers, this server does not require running an external program to handle image map requests. The support is built into the server, which makes the server very efficient at handling image mapping.
<A HREF="/wsdocs/32demo/32demo.map"> <IMG SRC="/wsdocs/32demo/images/imapdemo.gif" ISMAP WIDTH=300 HEIGHT=100> </A>
32demo.map is the name of the map file. When WebSite
Pro sees a filename ending in
.map it assumes that the file
contains NCSA-format image mapping data. This activates the
server's special built-in image mapper. WebSite Pro reads the map file and
uses the data in it to decide what to do. You can open the map
with MapThis! and see the regions
as they were defined, along with their target URLs (right-click a
region). You may have to locate the background image yourself (one time
only) after installing WebSite Pro. Here is the image mapping data for
the example above:
default /~wsdocs/32demo/noshape.html ellipse /~wsdocs/32demo/circle.html 8,9 90,89 poly /~wsdocs/32demo/poly.html 250,10 212,90 290,90 250,10 rect /~wsdocs/32demo/rect.html 130,10 171,91
WebSite Pro uses standard NCSA-format image map files.
You can put your map files in the same directory as the
documents that use them.

Note that the NCSA image map format supports the
element, in which a click outside any geometric region resolves to the
nearest point. The presence of one or more point elements bypasses any
background (default) element. The ellipse region is unique to WebSite
Pro. Most other imagemappers support only circles.
The HTML used in this sample is:
<A HREF="/wsdocs/32demo/self_test.map"> <IMG SRC="/wsdocs/32demo/images/file_imap.gif" ISMAP> </a>
and the contents of

ISMAPelement within an image tag, then enclose it with a link to the image mapper. The above examples use this method.
You can also make an image map by using an obscure but useful feature of
HTML forms. Create an input field of type
a form whose execution target is the image mapper. Forms can use
POST method, but
file-based image maps require using GET. An example,
along with the actual HTML used, appears below.
<FORM METHOD="GET" ACTION="/wsdocs/32demo/32demo2.map"> <INPUT TYPE=IMAGE SRC="/wsdocs/32demo/images/imapdemo.gif"> </FORM>
NOTE: WebSite Pro and MapThis! also support client-side image maps in which the coordinates and URLs are stored in an HTML file and processed by the browser. Not all browsers support client-side image maps. See Chapter 7 of Mastering the Elements
NOTE: WebSite Pro's unique built-in SSI support for page counters eliminates the need for CGI-based page counter packages completely.
This document demonstrates and tests WebSite Pro's SSI facilities. See Chapter 3 of Creating Dynamic Content for details on the features and syntax for using SSI.
st-info.htmlor with a trailing slash. Click the link below. If the top document is successfully redisplayed, the feature is working. If you get an error, your hostname is not configured correctly. Use the Identities page of the server's property sheet to correct your hostname and then try this test again. Try it now:
/~wsdocs/32demo <-- missing trailing slash
Now look at the displayed current URL. It should have a trailing slash on it, and it also has the port number after the host name if your server is running on a port other than 80 (the HTTP default).
