Hello,

I have this page, which is simply bizarre:

http://www.villasdirect.com/top-destinations.asp?Country=France&property-type=rentals

The pins are supposed to be in France, and when you move your mouse over the names on the left, they do move into their correct position, but not when the page loads...

I have attached the code for the page - help appreciated!

Thanks in advance ;-)

Go to your PlaceMarkers function.

When you create the marker, you're setting the "icon" to the "MarkerImage" you just made.
MarkerImage has been deprecated and was glitchy to begin with.
It's being fixed on the hover, because the mouseover / mouseout commands are then just calling .setIcon with the image url, instead of the MarkerImage object.

in var marker = new google.maps.Marker(.....
replace icon:img with icon:imgnam and it should work properly.

Couple other things if you're cleaning up...
1) A few lines above that you're adding an event listener for a marker variable that hasn't been declare yet.
2) You're missing the end head tag and the beginning body tag.
3) You're loading the google maps api twice, once in the head and once underneath the map
4) You're loading three different versions of jquery at various points in the page.
