Iframe height adjust to remote page content

Hi there.

I have an html page that contains an iframe which shows content from another website. I need the iframe to height adjust based on the content height.  I found a solution in the knowledge base - http://www.experts-exchange.com/Q_22701504.html -  that works beautifully for IE but does not work at all for Firefox. I was wondering if it could be modified to work in FF or another solution could be provided. I have provided the code below.
<-- HTML PAGE --->
 
  <iframe name="myframe1" src="css-js/getremotefile.php?loc=http://www.msn.com" align="top" width="690" height="2000" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" marginheight="0"> </iframe> 
 
 
 
<--- getremotefile.php ----->
 
 
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">
<html>
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
<title>Untitled Document</title>
</head>
 
<body>
<?php
  readfile($_GET['loc']);
?>
</body>
</html>

I looked at the link, tried the solution. It did not work.

I used the solution posted by hach-que at 17/07/07 08:07 PM. The solution works in IE but not Firefox. Here it is below.
As for remote sites, you can use :

getremotefile.php :
<?php
  readfile($_GET['loc']);
?>

Then just tell the IFRAME to goto getremotefile.php?loc=http://www.remotesite.com

You need BOTH solutions.

Why would IE resize to content and FF not when you have no code that resizes the iframe???

How right you are! I did have the other code in an external js file. Since it wasn't working I changed that code to the javascript mentioned on Dynamic Drive (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex17/iframessi.htm) and used it in conjunction with getremotefile.php. And here is my iframe code. it works perfectly in both FF and IE.
Thanks for making me take a closer look!

 <iframe id="myframe1" src="css-js/getremotefile.php?loc=http://www.externalsite.com" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" frameborder="0" vspace="0" hspace="0" style="overflow:hidden; display:none;" width="690" scrolling="no" ></iframe>
