How can I dynamically display an external page in an iframe?

I'd like to have a single page at my site where I could dynamically display an iframe of an external URL with my branding above it, so that a URL like http://www.mysite.com/view.php?URL=www.cnn.com would automatically display in this layout:

http://cl.ly/6b7e8801e41034045e22

the way StumbleUpon's top banner looks (doesn't have to be that url structure)

Is there a way to do this in PHP or jQuery?

Thanks,

Nathan

SImple JS :

      window.onload= function() {
            document.getElementById("myframe").src = "http://" + gup("URL");
      }

Where GUP are here : http://www.netlobo.com/url_query_string_javascript.html

test page :


<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<title>Untitled Document</title>
<script language="javascript">

	window.onload= function() {
		document.getElementById("myframe").src = gup("URL");
	}

	function gup( name ) {
	  name = name.replace(/[\[]/,"\\\[").replace(/[\]]/,"\\\]");
	  var regexS = "[\\?&]"+name+"=([^&#]*)";
	  var regex = new RegExp( regexS );
	  var results = regex.exec( window.location.href );
	  if( results == null )
		return "";
	  else
		return results[1];
	}

</script>
</head>
<body>
<iframe id="myframe" width="1024" height="800"></iframe>
</body>
</html>
