    Embed Google Maps in Post?

    I know I've seen it done on some other people's posts but I can't seem to figure out how to get a Google Map embeded in my posts.
    Being a map geek,it's driving me crazy.

    Anyone know the trick?

    OK....
    Here's the embed code that Google maps gives you:

    <iframe width="425" height="350" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" src="http://maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&amp;ll=37.0625,-95.677068&amp;spn=65.645551,135.527344&amp;z=4&amp ;output=embed"></iframe><br /><small><a href="http://maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&amp;ll=37.0625,-95.677068&amp;spn=65.645551,135.527344&amp;z=4&amp ;source=embed" style="color:#0000FF;text-align:left">View Larger Map</a></small>

    I'm still at a loss.
    I give up.

    Ok, on Google maps, click "Link" and then choose the top link, "Paste link in email or IM", it should look like:

    Code:
    http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=new+york+city&aq=&sll=41.081445,-81.519005&sspn=0.002794,0.003299&gl=us&ie=UTF8&hq=&hnear=New+York&z=10
    Then, in your post, just paste the text in. No tags or anything around it. Click "Preview Post" and the map should appear.

    Make sure "Automatically embed media (requires automatic parsing of links in text to be on)" is checked.

    YAY!!!
    Thank You, thank you, oh thank you!!!!!


    This is really turning out to be a great day (despite the hangover)!

    Google Maps

    Funny, I've pasted map links before but they never showed up embedded like this so I figured it had to be something fancy.
