Secret Harbour, St. Thomas, USVI

An upcoming vacation, a contribution to Google Sightseeing, and a new feature in the DocBook XSL Stylesheets.

Deb and I are going back to St. Thomas in a couple of weeks. I mention this, one, because I'm really looking forward to it and, two, because I wanted to make my own contribution to Google Sightseeing.

Admittedly, it'd be more impressive if the satellite imagery of St. Thomas was of a little higher resolution. But if you go to the map and scroll left, you'll see the runway jutting out into the ocean which is sort of cool (“I think we'll get up to take-off speed in time, I think we will, I think we will, oooh, there's water under us, I hope we did”).

More interesting, perhaps, to the DocBook audience, is the fact that the image above is a client-side imagemap constructed automatically from an imageobjectco tag in the sources. Support for that is experimental, but will possibly show up in the next release of the stylesheets; right now it's only in CVS.
