Embedding a website within a website, and having it stay there

A previous question/solution shows how to embed one website within another.  I have a similar situation, but the previous solution doesn't work to the extent I need.

I want to offer visitors to my site the opportunity to play around with a beta website, and then I want to ask them a few questions about what they think.  I want to embed the beta site on a page and have them be able to move around all they want on the embedded site without ever leaving the original site.  Using the previously provided solution, as soon as a link is clicked on the embedded webpage, the entire browser window goes to the clicked link.  I need people to stay put in the main "window" while they are free to surf around the "inner" window.  Hopefully that makes sense.

Thanks ahead of time!

as long as your links aren't targeting _top or _parent you should stay in the iframe. can you show the implementation that isn't working for you?

Well, I think I've answered my own problem.  

Alien109, I was NOT targetting anything.  The IFRAME I was using looked like this:

<iframe src="http://www.espn.com" width="800" height="600"></iframe>

It looked fine at first, but as soon as I clicked a link it took over the entire window.  Since I'm going to be showing a mocked-up website that I control, I was able to fix it by modifying that code:

<iframe name="subwin" id="subwin" src="http://www.espn.com" width="800" height="600"></iframe>

In the mocked-up html, every link includes target="subwin" and that seems to work fine.  Anybody know how to fix it if I can't control the link targets?

Thanks again in advance... again...
