I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If it's on a different domain, then the answer is No.

It's a breeze with PHP, though, and I imagine the same thing is true for ASP or Perl.

and if it is from your harddisk, you can rename the page with extension .hta and it will work too.

Use an invisible iFrame with the source for the iFrame set to the HTML page from where you want to grab the content. There is a workaround to get over the cross - domain issue too.
var frameElem = document.getElementsByTagName("IFRAME")[0];
var frameWnd = window.frames[0];
oHtml = frameElem.Document.body.outerHTML;

etc...

So is HTA

Only way to do cross domain scripting in Netscape/mozilla is with a signed script

Its on the same server, I'm pulling from what I believe is a perl script (havent been given all the information yet).

I have written two scripts one in ASP and one in PHP for snagging web content, but was told that the servers dont support either language, ASP i can understand, but PHP.
