I've been reading through Tyler Mitchel's Web Mapping Illustrated and also downloaded a copy of the itasca sample from maptools.org. Then created some shapefiles in OpenEV and modified the itasca.map file to include those layers and removed all the other layers, but it seems that there's no effect - a blank display I've also tried to play with the outline color, but nothing. Find the map file below: find the map file here: http://kompisen.se/xqSjGadQsN
Update: forgot to specify some details, sorry.
