I definitely like the idea of the measurement tool (it was actually on my
todo list) and I think this is a good start. I suggest two refinements to
the measurement tool before it's ready for widespread use. 

The first is to overlay some sort of graphic on the map denoting start and
end points. Secondly, it should be able to input/output more than just one
map unit. 

Chameleon's Ruler.Widget.php file contains functions for both of these, and
the inclusion/conversion of some of this code into measureTool.js would go a
long way to improve its functionality/etc.

Thanks Paul, we'll be pleased for the keymap tool, I'm sure you are right
for the CVS version we are using an old one.

"For the measure tool, I don't see anything on the map, should I?"
watch, on the bottom of the page. after you drag and release you must
see: "measure is: XXXXXXX.XX"

tanks for the icons, I'll put a disclaimer.

Me and Andrea will test all other points.


ps: Pete, I don't write you directly because your server don't accept
dynamic smtp dealers.
