NOHREF indicates that the
<AREA ...> is not a link.
NOHREF doesn't make much sense unless the area is in a map that uses
<AREA SHAPE=DEFAULT> or the area overlies another area that does have an
HREF. For example, suppose we wanted an image map in which a circle in the map is a link, but a smaller circle inside the link circle is not a link. We could accomplish that by first putting the tag for the inner area (earlier
<AREA ...> tags overlay later
<AREA ...> tags), and using the
NOHREF atribute, then putting the tag for the outer
