Hi Thomas!

Sorry for the late response!

Both references were very interested reading - so I really recommend 
this to anyone going to start with openlayers :-)

For example this teached my what the displayProjection parameter while 
creating a map is really used for :-)

Anyway, the current documentation about the various parameters used in 
various functions is virtually none existing. Hopefully this will become 
better in the way you've described.

Regards, ULFL

P.S.: The most pressing need to document is IMHO very certainly the 
various possible options that you can choose for the various 
constructors ...
