Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Hi, I want a detailed explanation of the way to embed OSM map in my flash software. Basically, I want to save the map data so that it can be viewed even if there is no internet connection. Is it possible? Google maps do provide .png file with markers on it(Static Maps) by just a link [eg. http://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/staticmap?center=20.613535,72.928757&zoom=8&size=1000x1000&sensor=false&markers=color:blue|20.613535,72.928757&markers=color:green|21.613535,72.2757] Please guide if OSM provides similar feature. Thank you..

Exactly the same as your example, see our wiki: Static map images. You may also want to read about Rendering (the process of converting our geo data into a map or (routing) service).

A side note: Please always obey the service's usage policy and our and the map image creator's copyright.
