good stuff... i've really got into the GMaps.dll for the current site that i'm working on. part of the 'requirement' (ok, not really a requirement as i'm creating the spec as i need) is to have a map attached to any postcodes on an events calendar, so that punters can get an idea of where a venue is. one lovely side effect of adding the GMap.dll was the fat that i suddenly realised that google maps also allows you to request 'directions' from one postcode to another. A little bit of rooting around and sure enough, Gmaps incorporates this functionality too (it uses dhtml to add the spans into a predefined div element which contain each step of the direction info). so for 'free' i get to be able to allow the visitor to not only see where the venue is, but also to optionally request directions to get there...

and then click on the 'Events' tab. after this, click on any of the events in September and it'll take you to the google functionality tabs - then 'play' :) )
edit: just noticed that my css for gmaps doesn't behave very nicely in firefox (fine in ie). any tips greatfully received!!
