 Hi Guys:
I've written a small javascript - html program
http://gpsmancer/android/amdroidgpstest.html to test linking to an
android platform.  With this I've written as small program that uses a
java  wv.loadUrl( " http://gpsmancer.com/android/androidgpstest.html" ;)
in a android java program. The idea is to provide GPS latitude and
longitude to an html form program.  When I run the app using the
emulator I get "Web page not available". If I go to the android
emulator web browser it finds the url without difficulty.  It has not
trouble finding other URLs as well.  My question: do I need to set
some sort of emulator setting or permission or does the emulator not
work with java/javascript/html?  For those that care about geocaching,
the game can be seen at  http://gmpmancer.com  . There are several
variations and I am attempting to extend the game to android.  I have
a netbook version working on my ASUS netbook running winXP but the
android platform seems to be a logical extension.  Some of the
versions work on IPhone, and various cellphones but in a crippled

1. Setting File Permissions

If I have a File object which points to a non-existent directory
(which is within my apps 'app_data' space), I can call file.mkdir() or
file.mkdirs() to create the directories.  However, if I do this, the
directories seem to be created with permissions set for access only by
the owner (i.e. drwx------).  Then if I write a .mp3 file into that
directory, I cannot later play that .mp3 file using the MediaPlayer,
apparently because it does not have permission to read the file (note
that if I put the .mp3 file directly in the 'app_data' directory, it
works fine).  How can I set the permissions on the directories that I
create so that the MediaPlayer can access the files?



2. Problem with ListView on a 480x854 device

I have a ListView where the rows are not scaled properly under certain
circumstances.  If I build my project using the following manifest,
then the ListView looks like: http://gabysoft.com/images/androidgood.png.
However, if I change the minSdkVersion to 4 (and that is the ONLY
change), then the ListView looks like: 
Note that if I run on a 320x480 device, then everything works fine.

Can anyone explain what is going on here?
