Can anyone tell me, or point me to some documentation that lets me know how much interactivity I can get by saving a map as a web page.

I would be very happy if I can just have the data I link to the pushpins show up as a roll-over or click event when saved as a web page.

In effect this would be an image map map!. Certainly I could do this the long way but the information regarding this tool has made me belive that this functionality is present in the application.

Thanks,
This confirms my first impression that the base functionality of the tool supports adding hyperlinks to the pushpins and thats about it. To that point, i could look to embed values I would need to pass for each pinned location in side a url. While I can see this working, its not a scenario I would want to involve myself in regarding a monthly production cycle without seeing how far I can automate the creation of the data to create the unique hyperlinks.
I have also thought that since I can add a link to the pushpin, I would guess I could also add a javascript function that might make it easier to add the unique information for each pin. Has anyone tried this?
