Nicer display of 'missing' tiles

Where we reach the edge of the map, we should try and do something nicer than try to load tiles and end up with 404 image boxes.

Maybe some fancy javascript thing to load a blank image in the event of a 404 error?

There is a white tile that I was going to get apache to serve as a 404, not sure what we want to do about the caching of that. In fact we probably want to serve a 302 so that the browsers realise it is always the same tile.

I was also thinking of putting (in really pale text) "No mapping here" on it.
