I want to achieve somewhat of a old style of frames, but using <iframe>

how to make an <a href> link tag to control the source of an <iframe> on the same page?

<a href="DisplayPortal1" onClick="myIframe.iframe.src='DisplayPortal1.php';"> Display 1 </a>
<a href="DisplayPortal2" onClick="myIframe.iframe.src='DisplayPortal2.php';"> Display 2 </a>

<iframe src="" ID="myIframe" >  </iframe>
