the pageviewer webpart (PVWP) is just an iframe... yup pretty pathetic. MS could have just add a parameter to the content editor web part.

Anyway, you can't. What ever the page looks like is how you get it, except in a frame. You can do some programming and use an HttpRequest object client or serverside, to get the content at certain points. But you can't do didley  with the PVWP

But isn't it possible to retrict the html displayed in the "iframe" by specifying a start tag and end tag. i.e., create a web part, get the start tage and end tag from users and display html only within those tags? Is this possible or am I just going in the wrong direction?

Well you have access to the DOM so maybe you getElementById and set the tags you don't want to see to hidden.

Yes, that's what I mean by "programming", but not with the PVWP.
Chances are you'll have to look for a specific string.

So your JS/C# will be like.

HttpObj.Response.Substring(HttpObj.Response.IndexOf("myStartStr"), HttpObj.Response.IndexOf("myEndStr"))
