Thanks Mark. That was indeed simple.

Do you have any suggestions on how I might make this cross platform?  
Works wonderfully well on the Mac, but I need the a new browser client  
for the PC, Internet Explorer?

What does this

  "http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&client=safari&pwst=1&rls=en&q="

become on Windows?

Jim
