I see two usemaps that work but expand out to lists of meaningless
Active Server Page URLs, and a couple of altless image links.  And
looking at the source I see the missing usemaps.  But at least there's
text on the page, even if it's meaningless marketing drivel with no
clear way of getting to product information.  I have to say the Fnord
site was worse.

No surprise there.  I've seen a massive expansion in the number of
ASP pages out there (I know, call the Department of Redundancy
Department) in the last few months.  I don't like them.  Even when
what they spit out resembles HTML, they break my cacheing strategy and
the principle that a given URL always points to the same document (for
some suitable definition of "same").
