Again - thank you. I am still getting some errors, but it appears to
be due to improper layer titles. I have a title "5' elevation
contours" in which the single quote (') is causing the insert to fail.
And this is important for me to learn as I test my WMS with various
different clients.

Did that layer title not cause an error for you? I am using
postgres.Are you using MySQL?

I can not find the wiki at www.mapbener.org, nor can I create an
account, any idea what I might be doing wrong?
