I am wondering how to get that descriptive text that sometimes shows up under the placemark's name (short of manually editing the kml file line-by-line). I saw it on some of the marks on the Tour de France file that was posted and am curious about how to make those. I have not purchased GE plus yet but will if that's what I need to create that.

You dont need plus :)
Just put text in the description box when you add or edit a placemark! :D

Thanks but I guess I'm wondering if i can do an import (say i go from a GIS or import a csv) and achieve that en masse. For instance, if i had a csv, can i have a field for annotation or description that automatically loads that information? I have a number of points and would rather not go through each one and type a description.
