Can you upload the page and provide a link so we can see for ourselves?
Hotspots are linked areas over an image map. IOW: one image with several different links on it. You won't get any hover effects on image maps. Sorry.
Better to use a CSS menu system.

Thank you. That saves me a bunch of time. I'm new to this and learning as I go. That was my first post but it won't be my last.
