Hi Alain,

you example looks good, but I think it has a serious bug. The map lays over the flex application.
So it covers the flex application.

Example:
- open Google Maps in your explorer
- klick on "About" in the top right corner
- or another tab in your explorer
- the content is always behind the map

Maybe, the map should be integrated in something like a HTML frame (mx.controls.HTML / currently
only AIR) for a better integration into the flex app.

Best regards

Marcus Fritze
