Installation of a map on a site

Use the following code for an insert of a map on pages of your site.

Pay attention, that name of a XML-file is passed as parameter. It enables to use a map some times on one page (one site).

Also you can use JAVASCRIPT for insert of SWF-object. More in detail about it

Color Picker

Probable problems.

The map is displayed with a black background and interactive functions do not work.

It is used wrong a html code for an insert flash object. Use a code which you can find on this page. Also this code can be found in a source code of a file *.html

It is possible to use javascript for an insert flash object. http://blog.deconcept.com/swfobject/

Why do I see a message prompting me to "click to activate and use this control" when I roll my mouse over a Flash animation?
