Except the countries and the capitals would be selected separately and "light up" on the map accordingly. I couldn't figure out how to build the SVG map though so I just gave up on the map.
How did you figure out how to build your SVG map? Did you already have the background knowledge necessary?
I tried to follow the instructions from the blog entry on this site, but there's something I'm not doing right and I don't know what.
For some reason the Oceanian capitals are easier to remember.
Kind of weird how few people know all the countries of this planet, but they can name you hundreds of musicians or other famous people (and in depth stuff about their private life, like what they like for breakfast)
