What HTML is allowed in KML <description>?  For example <iframe>? HTML canvas? What will display when point info box is opened in Locus?

Hmm as I know, there are no known limits. You may try even an iFrame.

Matthias here from forum should tell you lot about it. As I know, he use some editable Google Docs tables as description in points :)

Yes it is. Whole "Description" is placed into Gecko web browser. I was only thinking if enable support for JavaScript, but in the end, it's enabled also.

So the real limit is your imagination!  ;D

Edit:
If someone finds some time, please try to run some php based CMS like WordPress or Joomla.

Guys, stay calm. Otherwise history will repeat. So please keep away all the unsafe webstuff like js, php (!!!), and so on ...
Nobody wants to have an dangerous animated webbased picture book inside of <desc>.
Keep Locus clean!

Don't worry Christian. Nothing like this will be directly in Locus. We just talk about, what is possible to display in description of points. And if anyone want's to display some iframe with by php generated pages, why not. His choice ...
