Fixed obscure bug in article #26 and its demo program
An obscure bug in the article "How To Embed GoogleEarth in your Delphi Application" has been fixed. The article's demo source has been updated and the article amended to describe the problem so that others can avoid it in their code. The bug, which manifests itself only in some non-English locales, was causing geocodes to be misinterpreted, giving unexpected results. Many geocodes were dumping the user in the Pacific Ocean! Thanks to Irwin Scollar for telling me about this.
