@patrick that is exactly what I was in the middle of writing about. I was meaning to write up the technique of using a static map then enhancing with JavaScript, but Drew beat me to the first step. I already had some base code which I’d turned in to a basic plugin. This article spurred me on to finish it (to a releasable standard at least). Check it out at my jQuery Google Map plugin which hopefully does what you need.

I want to take this further, to include directions (a relatively small task) and to add functionality where you associate it with an peice of HTML and it adds that to the marker and creates the popup.

Another script I want to write is one that takes ADR microformats and generates the map and directions for it. I have already done this, but it just needs wrapping up in to a plugin (see for example).
