IE always jumps to Google Iframe maps - WHY?

We have this code in our database.
It renders it onto the browser perfectly, and views the map.

But - when you load the page in IE8, and the map is about 2/3s the way down the page where it should be, BUT it jumps straight down to that page.

In Firefox, it's fine. Page loads at the top and you can scroll down.
IE8 - jumps straight down to it.

Has anyone come across this before, and if so, how can u fix it??

I can't replicate your problem, it seems to work fine. Can you paste the URL of the page in question, without "http : //www."

At the moment, sorry no I can't, as it is in BETA stage and behind passwords, that I obviously cannot post here.

Not to be rude, but I genuinely don't think showing it live to you will make an difference to finding the fault.
I think it is something to do with the Flash or software Google uses, and IE8 just decides to jump down to it.
FF never does it.

I've tried putting an ancor at the top, and making the link go to that ancor when the page loads, but it has no effect.

Have you tried putting that HTML into a page, further down the page, then linking to the page? If you have, let me know. I'll try the same, rather than doing it via the db.

No I didn't. This was ages, and I think we ditched the idea in the end.
