random walk through fields of musings

At the beginning of my love affair with Google Earth, I proudly wrote some KML-spitting-out pages that allowed me to record or playback a tour in it. It was written using the generic reporting framework I built using the once-upon-a-time-and-still-somewhat-spiffy-but-totally-unsupported Zapatec framework in a few hours. It worked and still works well. Too bad that Google Earth 5 now has support for Touring (recording and playback native in KML without using network links) built-in.

I suppose I can rewrite my KML to do either view-based refresh or the new way based on the user-agent. Wait. Can I do capability detection in KML?
