I am having a strange problem with the mapserver/openlayers combination. When i call the map layer of type annotation directly from http://..../mapserv.exe ?example.map&layer=xxx&mode=browse. it works perfectly showing up all the annoations.
But when i use it in openlayers.wms, it just cannot show at all. on a small sample though it does show up..both using the url directly and using openlayers.
