I was just playing with multimap.com's aerial photograph feature, and noticed something I hadn't seen mentioned on here before - Ordnance Survey map overlays applied dynamically on mouseover over the aerial photo.

Try http://www.multimap.com/map/photo.cgi?client=public&X=411000&Y=200000&width=700&height=400&gride=&gridn=&srec=0&coordsys=gb&db=&pc=&zm=0&scale=25000&downright.x=67&downright.y=7 and move your cursor over the map - if it works with your browser you'll see a rectangle of OS map applied over the photo where your cursor is.

Any chance of editing the link contents to be a bit shorter, i.e. so that horizontal scrolling just to read text isn't required. TIA.

Thanks!

For future reference, it's not the length of the URL as such that matters - it's the length of the text between the <a> and the </a> whatever that may be. In this case they are the same, but they don't have to be.

You could always use one of the services like tinyurl.com

Neat idea.

Could you please edit the link so it doesn't make my friends page require left-right scrolling, though? Thanks.
