Mashing up with Snipsnap

Having run a personal snipsnap wiki for a number of months, I have got to the stage where I want to use it as a host for a couple of mashups. Fortunately there is a user contributed macro that allows for the use of HTML within a snipsnap page. Otherwise, because the page input screen interprets a markup language, all HTML is treated as text. This macro is installed by copying it i.e. the .jar file to the directory named in the Java CLASSPATH. It really is as simple as that, and then using snipsnap's macro syntax. You can also see what I have written at my bliki.

{html}
<SPAN STYLE="color:red">This font is Red caused by a Span tag pair</SPAN>
{html}

This has allowed me to embed a google map in one of my pages, the example below is about Brussels.

 

Snipsnap + Google Map

 

and the example below shows a del.icio.us tag roll.

 

Snipsnap + del.ico.us tag roll

 

In both cases, I have implemented then using <IFRAME> tags; in Google's case because they suggest it and in the del.icio.us case because it is a Javascript and the CSS wasn't working. It seemed easier to escape the CSS domain by using IFRAME as I have had difficulty with this problem before. I think its to do with the anchor rules I define in the CSS files. I have had this problem with roller as well, although not with the del.icio.us tag cloud as you can see my checking out My Links page at blogs.sun.com, although it remains marked as beta. You can also see what I have written at my bliki, but again, its not much more.
