HTML Client-Side Include - can i do it?

Last Modified: 2013-11-18
I have a website that will only be run on my school intranet, (ie. it doesnt run on any fancy SSI server) and i want to include one html file inside another. I would like to have a single index.htm page that responds via javascript or something to links and includes in a cell of a table different files depending which option is clicked.

what is the command that i would use to include the file? like if you are using SSI you can use <!--#include file='otherfile.htm'--> but how is this done for client-side includes? Preferably i would like to use a javascript command, simply because i know a little bit of js, but any better ideas would be appreciated (except for running a SSI server)

Just so you know, this ISNT homework ;) I'm doing work for the school, but not for class.)
