testing Open Layers Map Viewer Service

Just messing around, watching the Tigers spank the A's and testing this Open Layers app... see http://openlayers.org/ for more info. The map shown below is easily embedded within any webpage... simply copy and past the code provided. More info includinng a tutorial is available from the Open Layers website... NICE! FYI... OpenLayers is a pure JavaScript library for displaying map data in most modern web browsers, with no server-side dependencies. OpenLayers implements a (still-developing) JavaScript API for building rich web-based geographic applications, similar to the Google Maps and MSN Virtual Earth APIs, with one important difference -- OpenLayers is Free Software, developed for and by the Open Source software community.
