American...Buy A Calendar!

Mon Feb 07, 2005 8:47 am

So I was browsing the AA routemaps...and look what I discovered.

If you hover your curser over the Europe area, you will notice that apparently there is still and East and West Germany  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Nothing special...just thought it was funny.

Wouldn't it be easier to buy a world map then instead of a calender? Wink/being sarcastic Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Still a big mistake though Smile/happy/getting dizzy

hummmmmm - I tried several times and could not duplicate what you reported. There is a Europe and Eurasia. Clicking on Europe - I only see western Europe. Even doing a view source and find I can see the words West German or East German in the code. Can you provide a better example?

Are you sure you're not confusing Poland with what you say is East Germany?

East Germany doesn't appear on the detail map once you click on the region. It's highlighted in red on the main map of the world. There's a little finger of land delineated between Germany and Poland -- the former East Germany.

I am NOT talking about the detail map, I said hover your curser over the map (till it turns red) if you click it, then yes, it displays Germany's true borders...post 1945 that is.
