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.

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

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)
