Is it possible to specify in a Schema an icon to be used in all the Placemarks?
Below is an example. I have replaced < and > with ~

~Schema name="SPIIA" id="SPIIA"~
~SimpleField name="Project Name" type="string"~~/SimpleField~
~SimpleField name="Type" type="string"~~/SimpleField~
~SimpleField name="Safeguard" type="string"~~/SimpleField~
~SimpleField name="Height/Length (ft.)" type="string"~~/SimpleField~
~SimpleField name="Width (ft.)" type="string"~~/SimpleField~
~SimpleField name="Depth (ft.)" type="string"~~/SimpleField~
~SimpleField name="Longitude" type="float"~~/SimpleField~
~SimpleField name="Latitude" type="float"~~/SimpleField~
~SimpleField name="Remediated?" type="string"~~/SimpleField~
~SimpleField name="Last Visited" type="string"~~/SimpleField~
~SimpleField name="Land Status" type="string"~~/SimpleField~

To specify an icon for a Placemark, it needs to be in a Style tag, either inline in the Placemark, or as a shared Style at the top of the document and referenced by a "styleUrl" in each Placemark.
