Hi all

I'm trying to find examples or get advice on how to create a custom marker symbol. Some background, I have a georss feed that provides my site with Hydrological information. What I want to be able to do is display on the map the current value at a monitoring site, along with an image that denotes what type of site that is, eg River flow, Water Temperature etc, The colour of the symbol will change based on a custom parameter in the georss feed which indicates what level of alert the site is in, eg Blue, Green ,Red etc. I can't seem to find any info on how to do this. I'm quite new to the javascript api, but I've done the same thing before in Silverlight, but obviously js is a very different beast.
Any advice or tips on where to find advice would be greatly appreciated.
