It is an utter and complete surprise to find bugs in the pre-alpha version of the blog.

A cursory inspection revealed that the links from the info windows on the google maps page were rendering into the iFrame and not loading a new page.

The solution to this was to replace the href’s with a teeny bit of JavaScript to make it work, but if I did that it would break the KML for Google Earth. Rock (me) Hard Place.

So I had to write a horrible replacement routine to take the href based KML and convert it on the fly to JavaScript for Google Maps. Now this part works – at the cost of an evening that would have been spent leisurely sipping my Riesling.

More bugs remain. Whatever you do don’t try this page in IE.
