Export Web Image Map

Bug Description

I have used Inkscape to prepare the graphics of my website, then exported it in png and applied a image map by taking the coordinates by hand... it has been easy but a little boring.
It would be great to have a tool that auto-generates the image map directly from inkscape. Easy alternatives that I can imagine could be:
- to insert a layer in the drawing that delimits the map
- to assign a sort of property to objects in the drawing that has to be active in the map

Then, the magic button "export to image map" do the magic and provides the html code along with the png.

This request needs to be clarified or closed.

It is a functionality comparable to "Save as Web Page" i Microsoft Visio.

When generating a GIF or PNG from a SVG image with http links associated with the grafical objects, it would be very nice if
the following HTML code could be generated such that the exported GIF/PNG could be used as a clickable map.


<IMG id="ConvertedImage" SRC="exported.gif" name=RasterImage USEMAP="#visImageMap">

<MAP NAME="visImageMap">
  <AREA shape="POLYGON" HREF="#CleanResturant" COORDS=" 86,360 180,360 180,303 86,303 86,360">
  <AREA shape="POLYGON" HREF="#Order" COORDS=" 133,180 180,208 228,180 180,152 133,180">
  <AREA shape="POLYGON" HREF="#TaskLasagna" COORDS=" 0,57 95,57 95,0 0,0 0,57">

As old and bizarre of a request as this is, it is still valid.
