Include and Images(addressing)

Im having trouble with the include method and images (their addressing)

i.e If I include ("http://www.google.com"); at abc.com I'll get everything ok except for the logo, because the logo address goes from: http://www.google.com.au/intl/en_au/images/logo.gif to: http://www.abc.com/images/logo.gif 

I need it so when I include a file it includes the correct addresses, not the addressing in the html...

Is there a way to do this?

well here is a way to include the googe homepage and have the logo show up:

function callback($buffer) {

// replace all the apples with oranges
  return (ereg_replace("<img src=\"/images/logo.gif\" width=276 height=110 alt=\"Google\">", "<img src=\"http://www.google.com/images/logo.gif\" width=276 height=110 alt=\"Google\">", $buffer));



include "http://www.google.com/webhp?tab=iw&q=&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&hl=en";


You basicly have to go through every link and do the replace function.

Wait, I found and easier way, here is an example:

echo "<base href=\"http://www.google.com/\">";

include "http://www.google.com/webhp?tab=iw&q=&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&hl=en";

just echo <base href=\"http://www.google.com/\"> before you include to tell the file where the links and images should point to.
