<!– saved from url=(0013)about:internet –>
<!– ammap script–>
<script type="text/javascript" src="ammap/swfobject.js"></script>
<div id="flashcontent">
<strong>You need to upgrade your Flash Player</strong>

<script type="text/javascript">
// <![CDATA[
var so = new SWFObject("ammap/ammap.swf", "ammap", "900", "600", "8", "#444444");
so.addVariable("path", "ammap/");
so.addVariable("settings_file", escape("ammap/ammap_settings.xml")); // you can set two or more different settings files here (separated by commas)
so.addVariable("data_file", escape("ammap/ammap_data.xml"));
// so.addVariable("map_data", "<map …>…</map>"); // you can pass map data as a string directly from this file
// so.addVariable("map_settings", "<settings>…</settings>"); // you can pass map settings as a string directly from this file
// so.addVariable("additional_map_settings", "<settings>…</settings>"); // you can append some map settings to the loaded ones
// so.addVariable("loading_settings", "LOADING SETTINGS"); // you can set custom "loading settings" text here
// so.addVariable("loading_data", "LOADING DATA"); // you can set custom "loading data" text here
