I don't believe it is possible but is there anyway to include someone else's page (legally, I am not trying to steal bandwidth. It's for an affiliate program), as part of your own page without using frames?  I tried server side includes in HTML as well as include statements in PHP.  All I got was blank pages.  Perhaps I was using them wrong?

If I have to use frames will the search engines not find the correct pages.  My hosting provider supports Perl and PHP.

Thanks

To use includes the page actually has to be on your server, and the server must be configured to support includes. I think you probably have three options if you can't use includes:

1. Bring the page over serverside, and integrate it into your page when you generate. A lot of work.
2. Use an Iframe in the page.  The easiest
3. Use a layer and populate it with the imported page on the client side using XMLHTTP. The most flexible.
