I was thinking along those lines, though as the map is generated server 
side the rule files would have to be stored on the server. One possibility 
is a set of pre-defined rule files for commonly-used styles, then have a 
web interface to allow the user to select their own custom scheme.

Will do. The 400x300 is because the code is derived from Freemap and 
Freemap uses that size; the rest of the screen space is needed for the 
Freemap controls though these are not needed here.
