    Yes but this doesn't require PHP.

    Follow their directions:

    http://www.mapquest.com/solutions/pr...?page=linkfree

    or here is a form you can use that I created for a clients site I am currently working on:

    Spookster: That form looks pretty useful. I only wish mappoint had something like that because they seem to be far more accurate and updated.

    Do you think we could see your code?

    It's not spook's code he posted. Have a look at mappoint's site, there's bound to be something to help you link to the map co-ords

    ya.. works fine.. i was just tired and damn cranky yesterday.. I actually looked at the code today instead of asking about it.. couple simple changes and seems to be somewhat effective...

    Thanks for heads up on this code!
