How do I embed a google map in a web page using Front Page?

I have followed the instructions in google. I only get the string of
characters when I paste the copied link in a page I am editing. I have tried
using the html page but I am not sure where to paste anything. By pasting in
the html page I have been able to view the map on the preview page but not on
the editing page.

When pasting code in Design or Normal view:

Click in the page where you want the code
Then use Edit->Paste Special
Select "Do not convert"
Click OK

The code will be inserted.
You will not see anything in Design view if any Javascript is involved.
Always preview in Browser to see how things look in real life, Preview is
only an approximation.

Thank you. I couldn't find "Paste Special" so I pasted at the bottom of the
text portion in the html view. It was purely a guess. As you said it didn't
show up in the normal view but it does show up in the webpage when I check in
the browser. It is not exactly where I want the map but it will do.
Perhaps as time goes on I will figure out more about html - or normal
Frontpage.
Thanks for the help.

Peace, TWF

Paste Special is on the edit menu in FrontPage 2003 - I don't have earlier
versions to check.

If you need to paste in HTML or Code view, first type a few odd characters
in Design or Normal view where you want the new code - XXXXXX will do for
these odd characters.
Switch to HTML (Code) view and look for the XXXXXX. This can be deleted and
replaced by your new code.

Note: HTML and Normal view come from FP2000
Code and Design view are FP2003
I don't remember what FP2002 uses since I hardly ever used it.

Thank you very much. Your information about the X's is most helpful. I
suppose it is a typical trick for veteran hmtl-ers, but not something that I
knew until now.
Thanks again, TWF
