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!

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...

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?
