Don't worry too much about the name search - I can fairly easily make 
that fall back. I just didn't bother as the rest of the site is useless
without javascript anyway.

One major problem is that the DIV that holds the map is currently
sized by javascript because I can't find a way to write it in CSS that
actually works portably. If you can solve that I'd be very happy and
it would be a major step towards being able to drop a static map into
the DIV in place of OpenLayers when javascript is disabled.
