New Earth API Developer's Guide and DOM Articles

Hey Earth API developers, have you visited the Developer's Guide recently? If not, you're missing out on some great new content and sample code! We've recently revamped the Developer's Guide in some very big ways: A special thanks goes out to Michael Jeffrey on the Earth API team for writing the new Developer's Guide. Thanks Mike!

Once you're done checking out the new Developer's Guide, click over to the Articles section of the documentation to read two new Earth API articles that shed some more light on the KML Document Object Model in the Earth API: The first article briefly discusses DOM concepts and motivations, while the second article jumps into code that uses the GEarthExtensions Earth API utility library to simplify common tasks in the Earth API.

I hope you all enjoy reading through the new articles and Developer's Guide! If you find any bugs, feel free to file them in the Earth API issue tracker or post to the discussion group.
