The JavaScript demo I mentioned in my original post was presented to my
client by another company that specializes in GIS. It screened out my Mac,
noting incompatibility. I don't know why they chose to rely on JavaScript. I
wish I could provide the link to the demo, but I'm sure my client would not
approve. pixxures.com is an interesting site. It quickly brought up an image
of my downtown location -- cool.
