I have a html page that contains a number of "a href" references that call up different pictures. However, the pictures display in a new window. I would like to display the pictures in the same div where the references are made. Maybe iframes is not the answer...

Generally in the href you'll add a target like so:
<a href="www.google.com" target="_self"> Google </a>

You can see all of your options here: http://www.w3schools.com/tags/att_a_target.asp 

Do you have access to the iFrame content? If you do, then you can just add the target manually.  Otherwise you may also want to look into a fancybox or lightbox alternative:

Use some Javascript

<head>
<script type="text/javascript">

function image(imagefile) {
	var img = document.createElement("IMG");
	img.src = imagefile;
	document.getElementById('image').appendChild(img);
        return false;
}
</script>
</head>

<body>
<div id="image"></div>
<div><a href="img/dir.gif" onclick="return image("img/dir.gif");">click to see image</a></div>
</body>

Open in new window


Something like that, to put the image into the image div.
