Google Maps and XSL
8th February 2005
This is in addition to the (now expected) XMLHttpRequest stuff. There even appears to be some of Microsoft’s weird VML, although as I’m on a Mac I don’t have access to IE/Windows to see what it’s doing with it.
As for Google Maps itself, it’s an amazing piece of work but it’s a shame they didn’t follow map.search.ch’s lead in degrading gracefully to a static version for unsupported browsers.
If anyone has any further insights in to how it all works, please post them in a comment.
