On the Trulia site I like the white text on the black and white map. By default modest maps outputs black text. Does anybody know how the generate this white text?

The map in that image is using Microsoft Virtual Earth's hybrid tiles, not manipulated at all. (Compare with the aerials at http://maps.live.com/ with labels turned on).

Hindsight does use a ColorMatrixFilter on map.grid to change the brightness, but that doesn't affect the text.

In Snapshot (our other project for Trulia) we used a ColorMatrixFilter to desaturate the map, and a ColorTransform to invert it.
