Hey guys, just a headsup that I have done a quick article on my blog at
http://chris.narx.net which is based on PG's kaXMLOverlay code and my
previous routing article.

Unfortunately I don't have any time to extend the functionality to the
level I would of liked, so I hope I've inspired someone to keep working
on something similar.

Pg, I found a few quirks/problems with the current code (see comments at
end of article). Hopefully I get some time in the coming weeks to
suggest/help with some changes.

I've a couple of hints:

1. The XML is served with no mime type by your web server. It should
have a mime type "text/xml". Configure your server to associate ".xml"
files with the correct mime, or, if you generate the XML dynamically,
use a directive to set the mime type.
Look at the source code of the script used in my example:


2. The map shoul be initialized before the overlay get loaded: i
usually create the overlay in the KAMAP_MAP_INITIALIZED event handler.
