In lack of different means of placing location markers (a picker would be nice as I do not have addresses for a lot of the places I want to display) I am using google earth to create all my places, and then exporting them individually to KML files. Problem is that when the page loads, the maps are zoomed all the way in regardless of what I choose as altitude in the KML file. I have set it both in the altitude tag and in the coordinates tag. Is there some other way of specifying zoom level in the KML?
