Hi guys/gals! I've read through a lot, great site but I'm stuck and have started pulling out teeth:(
I would like to selectively display markers (that change everyday) on a Google map, using a a couple of checkboxes (areacode)and a selection list (prices).

Was just looking at some neat HTML5 slider bars

	<script type="text/javascript">
