Default Link to MapQuest

Not sure if I can do it this way, but I am trying to use the LinkButton and the PostBackUrl property to allow users to locate an address. When I click the control it displays the MapQuest page without the map. When I paste the URL into IE it works fine. Any ideas?

Here is the link:

Sorry, but you are going to need to provide more detail than this.

This is kind of a hack the way you are doing it. It can be achieved but, IMHO, its unmanageable because that URL has to be formatted very specifically and the exclusion of one %, for example, will cause your entire link to not work as expected!

I might suggest using the MapQuest API instead:
