A lot of people are still sticking with GAU files for the simple reason that
they can't be looked at by most FS users. The XML files are open code - we
can all look at them and see how a gauge was made - and borrow the code for
our own dials. Obviously it is the payware people who don't care for this
and so they either stick to GAU or they use XML that links to a DLL file.

For elevator trim there are three variable you can call:

ELEVATOR TRIM PCT
ELEVATOR TRIM INDICATOR
ELEVATOR TRIM POSITION

GMT is a P variable rather than an A variable and you have several choices
for this:

ZULU YEAR
ZULU DAY OF YEAR
ZULU MONTH OF YEAR
ZULU DAY OF MONTH
ZULU DAY OF WEEK
ZULU TIME

Frustratingly, many of the really useful gauges are written in .gau
format. Is there a way of looking inside these gauges, to see what calls
they make, to obtain the data. As an example, I'd like to be able to
displat elevator trim and GMT, in .xml gauges. They are both available
as .gau gauges.
