I want to remove all the timestamp tags from the "My Places" file that Google Earth provides. This file is an xml file and is on my hard drive. The stamps look like "<gx:TimeStamp><when>2014-06-08T00:12:24Z</when></gx:TimeStamp>".There are 4,000 such stamps, so doing it one by one is not an option. I can't see how I would do a search and replace on the file because that would not remove the data in the middle.
So it seems I need to use XML Dom. I've been reading through the tutorials on W3Schools. Somehow I need to open the My Places file with the XMLHttpRequest object. How do I do that?
