DHTML div.innerHTML Source

Is there a way to set the innerHTML of a div (i.e. document.all.myDiv.innerHTML) to read from another file. In other words instead of this

  document.all.myDiv.innerHTML = "blah blah blah"

I want to do this

  document.all.myDiv.innerHTML = document.asp?queryvar

Anyway to do this? I tried using SSI's, but it wouldn't let me sub a JS variable into the middle of the include path for whatever reason (kept getting "The include file '/include/PerformerPop.asp?" + performer + "' was not found.").

You can only include a physical file using SSI. The include is done on the server side, even before the asp code is executed.

You could use the xmlhttp object to request the page from javascript:

function XMLRemote(url)
{
     var objData=new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP")
     objData.Open('Get',url, false);
     objData.Send();
     return objData.ResponseText;
}

document.all.myDiv.innerHTML=XMLRemote('document.asp?queryvar');

what you have to do is use either a frame or iframe to load the document, then under MSIE5+,
var oHTML = document.getElementsByTagName("HTML");
if (oHTML.length == 1) {
 document.all.myDiv.innerHTML = oHTML.item(0).outerHTML;
}
