How would you suggest to type the code in Google Earth?
And wouldn't it make it easier for cheaters with intelligent scripts?

There is no way to build a form inside of Google Earth.

However, in the options menu there is a choice to use the built-in web browser, rather than pulling your default external browser (IE or FireFox or whatever).

Seriously, Mickey, how about parking the graphic in the description balloon, but have it specify a single alphanumeric character, and present an array of maybe a dozen random characters that include it, each with their own hyperlink? This would allow a single click to mine the jewel.

Think of it this way -- anyone doing OCR isn't being deterred by the present graphic (really), so reducing the graphic to a single character in the CDATA wouldn't really open a floodgate. But it WOULD be Earth-centric, arguably a good thing.

No need for a form. Just for discriminating the presented graphical character from among a random list of other characters, each with a hyperlink, only one of which will work.
