Thanks percy.  No, I hadn't thought of that.  OpenLayers always gives me the
impression of one layer at a time, and doesn't usually include a layer list
that you can check on/off.  However, I'm sure with some thinking on WMS
services with transparent backgrounds vs TMS layer backgrounds, I might be
able to come up with something.   I'll look through the examples at
http://openlayers.org/dev/examples/.  Thanks for the idea.

- John
