Hi Christoph,

i have tested so far only some small ajax to enhance the gazetteer
functionality, not with a broader aspect of an ajax library.

I will have a look into prototype, for another project, so to examine
prototype with respect to mapbender, could you describe which parts of
the mapbender javascript code you would enhance with ajax

Cheers, Michael
