Maps in articles
If you've got a page that contains significant information other than the map, then you
won't want to deny access to people using browsers that are not compatible with the Google maps API
What you can do is to remove the <noscript> section, and the alert that you'd normally throw
for a non-compatible browser. Instead, initially create the map <div> with zero size, like this.
<div id="map" style="width: 0px; height: 0px"></div>
just before creating the GMap.
var m = document.getElementById("map");
m.style.height = "400px";
m.style.width = "500px";
var map = new GMap2(m);
you'll still be able to read all the text and see everything else on the page, but there
will be no map, and no empty space where the map would have been.
