Yahoo! Maps API

I've taken over a web site that has the following line of code:
<a href="http://maps.yahoo.com/py/ddResults.py?Pyt=Tmap&tarname=&tardesc=&newname=&newdesc=&newHash=&newTHash=&tlt=&tln=&slt=&sln=&newFL=Use%2BAddress%2BBelow&newaddr=&newcsz=&newcountry=us&newTFL=Use%2BAddress%2BBelow&newtaddr=828%2BEast%2BF%2BStreet&newtcsz=Oakdale%2C%2BCA&newtcountry=us&Submit=Get%2BDirections" target="_blank"><img src="../images/yahoomaps.gif" width="149" height="24" border="0" hspace="20"></a>

Open in new window

This is supposed to bring up a map in California, but the URL that shows up in the address bar when the link is clicked is:


and the map that comes up is in Taiwan.

I can see the the California address come up first in the address bar but then it redirects to this Taiwan address,  as if there's an error in the California address so Yahoo! defaults to another address.  (In Taiwan?!)

Can anyone point me to a description of the query string parameters that Yahoo! is expecting with this call?  Or maybe someone sees the problem.

Thanks for any help
