Do you mean in cwc2.xml and chameleon.xml config files?  Or could paths 
elsewhere be a problem?

No way.  I won't believe it :)  Is there a session stored somewhere I should 
toast to make it work for me?

Well,  I've tried it on Mozilla 1.6 (~= netscape 5?), Mozilla Firefox 0.9.3 
and in KDE's Konqueror browser.  My app didn't work in either of them.  
HOWEVER, it looks to be a problem with my template, since if I use another 
template (sample_cwc2.html) it works okay with my context:

Note world_context.xml is my own creation, but seems to work okay with the 
sample template.  Although I get this error when zooming in: 
"maturity_level not found. Returning default value." (I'll try not to take it 
personally)  But the map draws fine.

On the original one (which I'll kindly set aside now :)  I changed method to 
"GET" and now I see the details.  Nothing stands out as a problem there to 

Thanks for helping me find my legs.
