Making a page formatter c#

I was wondering if anyone could give me some pointers on how to make a URL like this  and have it place the html page in a frame within the .net page.

I have seen this done many times, but I don’t know the proper terms or have an example to look at.

but how can i make the target part of the main URL it self?

Like this

I'm not sure if a "?" is the correct character to use.

Will something like this help?  You use a bit of javascript to extract the link from the URL, and then set the src of the iframe to what's there.  Hope that helps.

<script type="text/javascript">
window.onload = setSrc;

function setSrc()
  var str =;
  document.getElementById("theIframe").src = str;

<iframe id="theIframe" src=""></iframe>
