Hello,

Every morning i check my site there seems to be some new problem that has crept in. Today, Firebug reports the following:

Node cannot be inserted at the specified point in the hierarchy"  code: "3

Line 0

What's causing this/how can it be fixed?


Many thanks

possibly from the invalid HTML in the page...

I'd change

<td width="63%" rowspan="3"><div id="display_map" style="height: 500px; overflow: hidden"></div></td>

to

<td width="63%" rowspan="3"><div id="display_map" style="height: 500px; overflow: hidden"></div>

(removing the orphaned closing TD tag)

hmm when I comment out the line

map.enableGoogleBar();

the error goes away. Lemme see if you're missing some HTML requirement for this to work.

Thanks for that MMDeveloper - i have asked the Google Maps API forum if they are aware of this issue:

Yes - it seems that this problem has been caused by the new release of the API that occured this morning. I have reverted back to version 2.132d and this seems to have fixed the problem for now.


Thanks again for identifying the source of the problem.
