The only way that ever existed to do this without programming was with  
something Rich, W9IF (I think) had experimented with, but when I look  
at his site I don't see it any longer. The idea was you wrote a  
regular html page, and inserted markers which were replaced at display  
time by the real values. In any case I'm pretty sure he never  
implemented telemetry.

To do what you want you either need to run an APRS parser, looking for  
the right data and holding it in a database, or use APRSworld to  
screen scrape the data you want (or ask for direct database access).  
findU does not allow direct access or screen scraping because of  
loading considerations.)

This is some pretty heavy programming, much worse than just html!
