When dealing with frames you can have the content of any site appear in one of the frames. Is there any equivalent functionality to do the same thing with tables? I basically want to wrap the contents of a web site in a table.

<table>
<tr><td>Insert webPage content here</td></tr>
</table>

Thanks
Dave

Shouldnt be too much of a problem, just get the websites code and shove it between the <td>'s .

Unless I didnt get your question...

Been thinking of your question, if you meant like in frames you say src=blah.com and it comes into the frame...nope, you cant do that with a table, what you CAN do is you can use a programming language like PHP to grab the far of sites code and shove it into your <td> but then you will have a problem coz the images dont follow with the code...

Hope that helped.

Cheers,
Mag

Or you can use an IFRAME inside of your table cell.

Hi,
IFrames work by having a "mini window" in your page so you can load say...an external site, but i didnt mention that coz they only work in IE....if your visitor has NN or nearly another other browser...that spots gonna be blank.

Cheers,
Mag

Here's an example!


inside.html
--------------------------------------------

<!doctype html public "-//w3c//dtd html 4.0 transitional//en">
<html>
<head>
<title> inside document </title>
</head>

<body bgcolor="blue">
<div style="color: #fff">
Here we are, in the inside page...
</div>
</body>
</html>




outside.html
---------------------------------------------
<!doctype html public "-//w3c//dtd html 4.0 transitional//en">
<html>
<head>
<title> outside document </title>
</head>

<body bgcolor="gray">
This is the outside page!<br>

<table border="1" width="400">
<tr>
<td>This cell is next to the cell with the IFRAME in it...</td>
<td>Here is the IFRAME:<br>
<iframe src="inside.html"></iframe>
</td>
</tr>
</table>
</body>
</html>

Iframe is the webpage element that creates an inline frame that contains another document. Iframe functions as a document within a document, or like a floating FRAME. It just loads another html document within the <iframe> tags. Syntax <IFRAME>...</IFRAME>

Examples:
This example uses the IFRAME element and an HTML fragment to create a frame containing the page sample.htm.


Code:
<IFRAME ID=IFrame1 FRAMEBORDER=0 SCROLLING=NO SRC="sample.htm"></IFRAME>


Parameters of Iframe:

SRC=URI (URI of frame content)
NAME=CDATA (name of frame)
LONGDESC=URI (link to long description)
WIDTH=Length (frame width)
HEIGHT=Length (frame height)
ALIGN=[ top | middle | bottom | left | right ] (frame alignment)
FRAMEBORDER=[ 1 | 0 ] (frame border)
MARGINWIDTH=Pixels (margin width)
MARGINHEIGHT=Pixels (margin height)
SCROLLING=[ yes | no | auto ] (ability to scroll)
