Yes, that was for testing, it's back to .png.

Well once you have selected a server you don't get redirected w/out seeing the
page, unless you go to say (i.e., w/out selecting a
path).  The first time you always get the page but it remembers where you were
going to so once you select a server it goes directly to the path you had
originally requested.

Sure, that was noted :-).  It needs a better image map (this one took me 2 hours
to create, but maybe we can find a volunteer to trace each country, should take
about 10 hours - I recommend KImageMapEditor).

Please send an image and a corresponding image map, it is easily done.  I used a
map I found (which was public domain) and drew the map areas, I am not willing

incorporate a better image and image map.
