Embedding a map in a web page

There are 4 steps:

  1. Copying the special text from a Word file linked to this page
  2. Then opening the page you want to edit and turning the page to HTML view
  3. Pasting the text and adding the appropriate postcodes
  4. Then returning to the normal view of the page

Finally save the page and the map can be treated as if it was a photograph, selecting it and then dragging it to its final place on the page

First you will need some html code, please follow this link to retrieve it

Now open the page where the map is to appear, click on the html buttonHTML view icon

You will now see a page of coding, this is your page so far, take your cursor to the very bottom of the text and on a new line paste in the text you collected from the Word document.
