Using "minipages" you put any HTML you want into the pop-up location balloons.

Wow, handy. Two somewhat related questions – what did you mean by the DAVE text in your G Maps Bios post? I didn't see anything in the satellite photo.

Also, I thought I'd point out that Amazon has changed their look on individual book pages, either today or in the past few days. I haven't found any news about it, though! See my post on BBR:,13101422

There was a "DAVE" somewhere in the middle...

As for the Amazon redesign, I can't see it. Do you have a screenshot with browser and URL?
