Default Superimpose links on an image?

Help needed, please:

I have an image, a line drawing, that I want to fill with multiple links, each link in a specific location on the graphic. The positioning of the links isn't in any easily organized way -- think of it as a house plan and I want a link in each room. I want the links to show the standard link text-controls: underline, change color for visited links, possibly mouse rollover effects. In particular, I want a way for the user to see what link he's currently on, like a border around each linked section. As far as I can tell, this can't be done with an imagemap, so I'm looking for another way. (Of course, if it can be done with an imagemap... :-) ).

What's the best way to do this (assuming it can be done at all)? I've tried layers with relative positioning, but I'm having trouble getting the positions to align. I don't want to use absolute positions if I can avoid it, but I will if I have to. I'm also looking for a less time-consuming method than creating multiple versions of the image, each with a slightly different effect on it.
