Embed HTML in HTML

I would like to include a HTML (full page and without scrollbar) into another HTML. I had tried to use #include but its not work at all, and I also tried to use <iframe> but it is needed to specify the height of the frame, it is not good for my page (double scrollbar, one for frame and one for window). The HTML whick needed to embeded with several pages with different height. Therefore, I would like to embed the html page with dynamic height which depends on the height of the embeded page size.

Are there any methods ?

Thanks a Lot and I am hurry.

you could tdo it the php way (presuming php is installed on your server):


the contents of the file file.html will be written into the main file thats calling it
note: the extension of the page will have to be changed to .php

try this, uses javascript to resize an iframe, just change the iframe width to what you need

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">

      function resizeToContent(){
      var x =document.getElementById("dynamIframe").scrollHeight;
      var z = x-200;
      var y =screen.availHeight;
      while (x < y){
<body onload="resizeToContent()">

<iframe id="dynamIframe" src="users.cfm" width="180" height="75" hspace="0" vspace="0" frameborder="0"><frame src="users.cfm" width="180" height="75" hspace="0" vspace="0" scroling="no" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" frameborder="0"></iframe>

what should be the size of the embedded page size? the whole page? as in the whole? you could do it dynamically somewhat like this...:

<body topmargin="0" leftmargin="0">
<iframe marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" borderwidth="0" framespacing="0" frameborder="no" scrolling="no" onLoad="this.style.height=screen.availHeight; this.style.width=screen.availWidth;" src="embed.html">
How can i embed if you don't have iframes???

The height is the whole page of the embedded website. For example, if I using iframe, the frame no scrollbar is needed. The iframe's height is equal to the embedded page's height. Only the window's scrollbar is needed.

But the embedded website's pages with different height. So, I would like the height of the frame with dynamic height if I using frame.

Many Thanks,
The include method works, but you need to rename the calling page to .SHTML or .SHTM, since the includes are SSI (Server Side Includes) so the server must be able to process them, also note the include can be file or virtual, observe:

<!--#include file="file.html" -->
<!--#include virtual="file.html" -->

Hope it helps.
all you need is to embed this into the exsisting HTML file:
<iframe src="embeddedpage.html"></iframe>

For an example an attributes you can use, go to the site W3Schools has on it:
