Hello all,

<script type="text/javascript"> //<![CDATA[
function load() {
if (GBrowserIsCompatible()) {
var map = new GMap2(document.getElementById("map"));
map.addControl(new GSmallMapControl());
map.addControl(new GMapTypeControl());
map.setCenter(new GLatLng(document.myForm.longitude.value, document.myForm.latitude.value), 8);

<div id="map" style="width: 500px; height: 300px"></div>
<form name="myForm">
Longitude<textarea wrap rows="1" cols="30" name="longitude"></textarea><br>
Latitude<textarea wrap rows="1" cols="30" name="latitude"></textarea>
zoom level<textarea wrap rows="1" cols="30" name="zoom"></textarea>
marker longitude <textarea wrap rows="1" cols="30"name="markerlong"></textarea>
marker langitude<textarea wrap rows="1" cols="30" name="markerlang"></textarea>
<input type="button" value="Erase Form" onclick="load()">


what i want to do is use the form to input data into an xml file that can be read by the google map..

can xml files be updated by a form? i want the javascript to read the markers for the google map from the xml file, thats why i need it to be updatable..

i want people to be able to edit my google map using the form, and using javascript to do it.

cheers for any advice
