You're simply out of luck there...unless they have been so kind to provide you with an anchor in exactly the spot you need...but somehow I highly doubt that...

Hi pak_slm,

I'm not really sure I understand your question, but to open a page in the iframe you need to set the target of your link to the name of your iframe.

The iFrame will have no layout of its own (by default) so you can alter a page to show it in any way you like...unless its an external page you have no control over.

Regards,
Max.

pak_slm,

Well, if the content fits that size you will have absolutely no problem, however if the columns or rows exceed your width and height, you will need scrollbars.

the page is full with information, the problem is i want to display a particular area from that page.
for example a stock exchange display rates of different companies on website. I want to display only rate portion from that page.

pak_slm,

In that case in that page place an anchor and link to that anchor, make sure you set scrolling to no for the iframe and the scrollbars to off. you could then make sure only that content which you need is displayed inside the iframe, make take some moving though.

score_under,

pak_slm wants to link to a specific place inside the document that is loaded within the iFrame, hence my suggestion for using an anchor.

No, because you don't control the page you are linking to...
