First of all, you don't need " /> " at the end of your image, area code so:

<area shape="ploy" coords="(457,84),(474,63),(549,63),(566,84)," href="pages/child.htm" alt="Child Photos">


<img src="assets/thumb9.jpg" alt="scenic3">

..should work fine.

Second, if "assets" is a folder in the same directory as your .html file, you should put

"./assets/thumb9.jpg"

The ./ denotes "the current directory", i find that that the pages are more reliable with it, then without it.

Thirdly, you don't have to keep closing and opening your <p></p> for each section.
You can use <br> to add spaces.

Personally, I would always put stuff inside a <div>, i find it's just better to manage. i.e:

<div>
   <h1 style="color: blue">Contest Winners</h1>
   <p>Here are the results for this month's contest for best photos
      in the categories of <i>Child Photos</i>, <i>Flower Photos</i>, and
      ....
      ....
      ...</p>

Your image map area shape "poly" is misspelt everywhere you use it. Try "poly" or "polygon" rather than "ploy". Also your coordiantes don't use ().

<area shape="ploy" coords="(457,84),(474,63),(549,63),(566,84)," href="pages/child.htm" alt="Child Photos"/>

should be

<area shape="polygon" coords="457,84,474,63,549,63,566,84," href="pages/child.htm" alt="Child Photos"/>

Actually, you should use the p tag to start and end paragraphs. The <br> tag has its purpose, but not for "creating" the illusion of the start of a new paragraph.
You can read more about that here: http://www.w3.org/TR/html401/struct/text.html#h-9.3

btw: WOW! does everyone use this same book?..lol It's the text book I used in college!

@teedoff

Completely agree with you regarding paragraph tags being used instead of break tags. To be honest, is there ever a real need for break tags? For instance, while they can be used as "presentational" markers, what about the blind users who have to listen to Jaws or other visual-aid software speak "to the end of the monthbreakthis is how the weekly schedule..."
