IIS and complex polygons

You'll probably never encounter this problem, but it's one you should know about. If you create server-side area maps for IIS, there's an upper limit on the number of vertices you can specify. Early versions of IIS respond with an access violation if you supply more than 100 points; the current version will break at 160. So, if you're planning to map out all the surface characteristics of a particularly complex shape, count your points carefully.
