KML palette

The 256 color palette available in KML is rather special because it has not just colors but also seperate alpha channel values for each entry in the palette index. The alpha value ranges from 0 to 255 where 0 means transparent and 255 means opaque. To see the palette available in KML, click KML palette.



For every line in the text file, the values are:   RED  GREEN  BLUE  ALPHA 

Font spacing

KML currently does not support automatic line wrapping. To wrap lines yourself, you have to know how wide the characters are. The following code is an example of how to calculate the length of text.

Please notice that the following tables start with ascii character 32 (space). The use of character set iso-8859-1 is assumed. Characters not found in these tables should probably be assigned a default width of appx. 10 pixels.
