suggestion to support read/write of sld files

It's a suggestion - not critical.

I just wouldnt mind a method which I can have datasets styled a certain way, ie be able to download the canvec data and have it look like the cantopo product. They do have a style/renderer that works on arcview 9.2. http://geogratis.cgdi.gc.ca/geogratis/en/faq.html#q47 (and #q48, #q49).

But I think SLD would be a better move as it's an open standard. I mean, we're still waiting for ESRI to open their file geodatabase.

I do know that globalmapper automatically renders several datasets, but this would give some styling into the hands of the community and users.
