there are 2 gerneral problems if you use tiling in tile-based web mapping
clients (like OpenLayers):
1. Some WMS create for _any_ map a scalebar, logo or watermark. If you use
tiling, it looks really terrible: look at the demos  and .
Are there already any proposals to solve this problem?
2. Another problem of tiling are labels. If you have a label, which overlaps
the tile border, it will clip and doesn't continue in the neighbor tile. Demo
 shows this effect.
Anybody already disussed some new methods to improve this?
I'm currently writing my thesis about usability in web mapping applications
("smart map browsing") using the example of OpenLayers. Therfor I search some
informations about trends and problems of tiling. I'm looking forward to
getting your replies. Many thanks in adavance!
