I am trying to incorporate a Google map in my website. Using samples from Google I have my map... but no markers. So... I have found a sample (here someplace) that uses javascript to load multiple markers called markers.js. I am now trying to change what I can in the *.js file to reflect "my" map.

First of probably a number of problems. I want my map to be 100%, the code in the *.js seems to regulate the size of the map by...

$(document).ready(function() {


height: 500,

width: 600


My good map does it this way

<style type="text/css">

html { height: 100% }

body { height: 100%; margin: 0; padding: 0 }

#map_canvas { height: 100% }


Can anyone advise me on what / how I can change this?

Thanks again for your time
