Hi list,

im a working on a webbased editor.
Manipulating geometries works fine, changing color too.
But now i want to store my changed styles as SLD


     var myStyles = new OpenLayers.StyleMap({
         "default": new OpenLayers.Style({
             pointRadius: "5", // sized according to type attribute
             fillColor: "#ffcc66",
             strokeColor: "#ff9933",
             strokeWidth: 2
         "select": new OpenLayers.Style({
             fillColor: "#66ccff",
             strokeColor: "#3399ff"

     var _sld=new OpenLayers.Format.SLD();
     var _style=myStyles.styles['default'];
     var _xml=_sld.write(_style);

Result in console:
<StyledLayerDescriptor xmlns="http://www.opengis.net/sld"
version="1.0.0" xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.opengis.net/sld

Any ideas why my xml keeps empty? I cannot see an error?

thx Carsten
