Thanks, it looks like that was the problem. I installed Quantum GIS and the conversion looks okay now. Thanks a lot.

comment GeoServer Web Feature Service (WFS) in Open Layers Problem
What should localhost/geoserver/… say that tells you it is capable of projecting to google? I have an instance that used to work, but after a reset has stopped being able to project to google.

comment Load and display a large number of points using openlayers
Thanks. "Would you be better served displaying density of points until a specified zoom has been achieved?" - any pointers as to how I could do this. Is it as simple as having 2 layers, and switching toggling them on and off depending on zoom? would I still need something like GeoServer to provide the postcodes?

comment Using OpenLayers how can I Extract some information relative to the whole KML file?
Sorry? A kml file has multiple placemarks. In my case, these are polygons. Each polygon has some data associated with it. I have no problem getting to that data (I can uses the description field, and in javascript it will be at feature.attributes.description). What I want is to get to some data that is at the document level (outside a feature). Data relevant to the whole "layer" not just a selected feature.

comment Using OpenLayers how can I Extract some information relative to the whole KML file?
I am basically trying to create KML files that contain all the information needed to be understood (a title, a legend), and avoid multiple hits to get the same bit of information. If a Placemark is equivalent to a feature, what is the appropriate place to put information relating to the layer?

comment Using OpenLayers how can I Extract some information relative to the whole KML file?
Thanks. In your example, f is a feature, correct? Features are equivalent to the Placemarks in a KML file, right? All my Placemarks are in a Document node. I want to be able to get to data directly under the Document node (or a better palace should it exist). I think you are allowed to give it a name, description, ExtendedData etc. I want to know how to get to that information. It is probably lost when parsed, in which case, I want to know if there still a reference to the raw KML which I could then parse myself.
