How to change image that has map

I have a client who has a website that, judging from the View Source code, was put together using GoLive (version unknown). A closer look at the code shows Frontpage 5.0 as the page editor. (?!) Yet, it has GoLive script commands all through it. I have FP2003 but know nothing about GoLive.

My client wants to make a small (but significant) change to one page. The problem is that the text content has been compiled and rendered in JPG format. (?!) So it seems the image itself (containing the text) would have to be edited, since I don't have access to GoLive and therefore not to the original text files, nor to the process that was used to generate the JPG.

I suppose I could just take the JPG, make changes in a graphics program, save the image and upload it. BUT... the problem is that there is a map over a small part of the image, so that the viewer can mouseover the map and up pops a window with more information.

I have created click maps over images in FP, but whenever I tried changing the JPG under the map, it never seemed to translate and I wounnd up having to create the map all over again. Since this page is so interwoven with GoLive commands, I'd be afraid that if I just changed the JPG, I'd wind up messing up the page, and then the page would have to be generated again using GoLive (or at least some of the code regenerated, which I don't know how to do using GoLive commands). The original web designer is unavailable to make the change, so if I mess up the page, I'm afraid I would have no way to solve the problem short of redesigning the site from scratch, which my client doesn't want to have to do just now.

I'm hoping someone here can help me figure out if it's even possible to make this small change without regenerating the whole page in GoLive. And if so, how can this be done using FP, or can I just edit the JPG and uploaded to the site? As I said, I'm afraid that if I try to do that and test it, I'll wind up messing it up and then the whole page might be useless.

Thanks in advance for any help anyone can give me about this!
