I have very long hyperlink that ends up getting broken at the '-' character in the About Me box. Also I believe it does this in the Comments area. I do like that you have made http:// come out as hyperlinks automatically, but when linking to a map like this, it will just end up confusing someone that comes across it and clicks on it.
