    Hi

     

    In that classic type of answer that no one wishes to hear, yes it is possible but no it is not possible, (easily) x-browser.

     

    For webkit browsers use the propriety box-reflect property, (not a W3C spec) https://www.webkit.org/blog/182/css-reflections/

     

    For IE10 and Firefox, (and webkit browser) you could use css transitions, transforms, (with css animation if you wish) setting the backface-visability http://www.w3.org/TR/2012/WD-css3-transforms-20120911/

     

    For IE11 and webkit browsers, (latter this year) you also have the css filters option - http://www.w3.org/TR/2013/WD-filter-effects-20130523/

     

    You will notice that there is as yet nothing for IE9 or below, this is because the effect can only be achieved using an IEFilter, using a combination of the flipV/H filters - http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms532847%28v=vs.85%29.aspx

     

    There are many problems for the unwary in using IEFilter, so unless you already have a good understanding of them, they are not to be recommended.

    I'm not entirely clear on what you mean by "mirror an image map".

     

    Can you please explain simply and clearly?

    Hi

     

    Don't worry about writing in English, as even though I can speak and read German, my written German is not as good as your written English.

     

    There is no function in dreamweaver that will reflect the image map co-ordinates for you. The only possible method I can think of to do this 'automatically,' is to write a javascript function that copies the image map co-ordinates into an array, reverses the array, then re-writes the co-ordinates in reverse order.

     

    Depending on how complexed your image map is, and/or how often this function would be used, would decide if it is worth the time and effort in writing the required javascript code.

     

    The simplest solution, (if possible) is to reverse the co-ordinates manually.
