Loads a xml from the admin panel, which tells us the following:

a valid xml should look like the following:

Want to show the map? Just put <?php locationmap("mapid"); ?> in your template. Don’t want to hack a new template or existing template together ? Just put the following in your post: %locationmap: mapid% .

Font is the fine Semplice Regular from Style-Force. http://pixelfonts.style-force.net/
