Thanks to everyone who offered (and is still offering) suggestions. I will
certainly look into all of them. I know I'm not completely enamored with
the idea of creating a map file for every map I'm going to need, but if I
have to then so be it. I too am interested in your method Ed. If you care
to share, I bet a lot more of us are interested.

Sounds interesting Ed, I'd love to see an example of your methodology.
