KindleGen 2.5 <map> and <area> tags not working

I am trying to setup an ebook mobi test file that allows you to go to a specific page by clicking/touching a specific area on page 1. Select one area and you go to page 2 or select another for page 3. The html code for the page 3 selection is:
<map name="map1">
<area shape="rect" coords="0,0,100,100" alt="area1" href="page03.html" />
</map>
The html files work fine in the browser, but I am unable to make the map tags work using KindleGen.
Is this even supported?

Not that I know of.

The Amazon Kindle Publishing Guidelines list the html tags that are supported, in one of the appendices.

<map> is listed as supported
no mention of <area> either way

why support <map> if not to support image-maps?

Sorry, maybe I'm missing it but I'm just not seeing <map> listed as one of the supported tags anywhere.

try this link:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.htm...d_i=1000765211

List of supported HTML tags and CSS elements
Lists the major enhancements in KF8 though it is not exhaustive

maybe KindleGen v2.5 doesn't yet support KF8?

Kindlegen 2.5 definitely supports KF8. Looks like conflicting information. But I'd be inclined to trust the official documentation in the Amazon Kindle Publishing Guidelines over a feature list.
