as the hotspot is clicked on, the new information displays in a single popup window, changing as different hotspots are selected
Hotspots on Image Maps are OLD School. This method of web design isn't used much anymore for accessibility reasons. Better to put single image or text links on the page and allow other site pages to open normally in the parent window. Multiple pop-up windows are annoying and confusing to site visitors.
there is no CSS as the servers we upload to don't support it.
You don't have a clear understanding of what CSS is and does. CSS is not a server-side technology. It is a simple text file used to style the HTML content. CSS is supported by all modern browsers.

What Nancy said.
Browsers support CSS, not servers.
Thanks guys but i don't think i explained myself overly well. Each page has a single image showing a form taken from our instruction manuals. For each different section of the form it is required to popup either on mouseover or on click to tell the viewer what information should be placed on the form. This means that opening in the parent window isnt an option unfortunately.

If you use the same "target" each time you open a window, the contents of that window will be replaced, rather than a new window opened. You can use something like target="myNewWin" each time.
