You can also use xearth (or is it xplanet?) and suck down current
images of the cloud layer which you overlay on top a globe on the root
window. You can have that globe stay on a particular longitute and
latitude. There probably is also a way to download other weather
numbers which you also place geographically on the globe.
This sounds more interesting than html to me. To have a hires picture
of the earth with a wide angle view of current cloud patterns and some
weather data thrown in.
I'm not positive about spraying the weather numbers on the globe. But
I have done the bit with the cloud layer. It works great.
