I want to put some labels on a globe in ArcGlobe. I've spent time looking here : and here

However, I can't seem to find any solid examples.

I've looked in the ArcGIS Snippet Finder when using Visual Studio as well. Also tried looking in the examples that include source code.

Is there somewhere else to look?
