If you don't know how I can explain, just ask! It's not as simple as just colouring them in Inkscape!

If you just make them gray, they will stay orange on jetpunk, I can explain how to make them stay grey if you'd like but not now, I'm a bit busy!

To begin, go to Edit-Xml editor, you probably now about th a already! Once your there, scroll all the way to the top of all of the ids. Click the drop-down for, not quite sure but SVG id. Then remove all the text.inside it. (It should say stuff like zoomable circle in there. Then, you essentially have to recolour everything. Removing the text makes it so they won't correct to orange in JetPunk. Colour the cities you want grey, and then there borders black. Everything will look the same in Inkscape, but if you upload the file, it will look black. You can recolour circles and countries as well as light water, by clicking one, then going to edit- select same, fill colour! that's about it, reading back through this comment, I realize that it's not too detailed. If.you have problems, which you might. just keep asking!

Just do CSS in the quiz instructions. That’s how I do it at least.

Also, removing zoomable circle would mess up the zoom, I wouldn’t recommend doing that.

Taizhou should refer to the one in Zhejiang province, north of Wenzhou and south of Ningbo, rather than the smaller one in Jiangsu province as marked on the map.
