Using iFrames

I want to insert a Google map into an ordinary page using the Google iFrame code generated on Google/Maps. I am aware of the Maps module but it seems very complicated just to show a static map (i.e. I can't figure out how to use it).

Anyway, the SilverStripe admin page editor (HTML view) seems to automatically delete the <iframe> tags and all I have left is a hyper link to the Google map page.

Is there any way around this?

This would also be interesting to know for me too.

I think that this works in 2.2.2.
