  I don't think I explained the possibilities correctly.  We can use this

  they have flash installed, and show the generated gif as the alternate
  image.  This will:
  - allow those who have flash installed to see the zoomable flash version
  - allow those who don't (or don't want to install it) to see the actual map.
  This would also support special needs, as the alt tag would carry through.
