Attribution, CSS, and IRC

I've built up the WFS OpenLayers example I've been working on to now include attribution (by hovering over a feature) as well as a pointless select feature capability. Click away! It won't do anything but, that's fine.

A different baselayer is also available, (via tiles). You may notice that some of these tiles fail to reload upon panning and zooming operations. I asked why this was on the OpenLayers IRC, and was told that these tiles basically suck. I'm stuck using them however, as they are Lat/Long WGS84. OSM Mapnik and Google maps require a spherical mercator projection, and as such PROJ.4 needs to be amended to support this EPSG code so that Mapserver and render properly.

It looks pretty straightforward, but another project for another day.

In any event, I've kept the OpenLayers WMS as the primary base layer, which doesn't have display issues.
