we have a cf questionnaire we give access to our clients on our site. Some clients have expressed interest in having it on their site but they do not have cf.

would there be a way to give them some sort of code/script to put on their site to serve up the content and results?...without getting them to install cf

You could do an iframe so it could be branded via client site but everything else happens on yours I do this using Static FBML so it looks like the app I have on FB is integrated with FB but it's just and iframe to our site.

Other than that - not really.

Railo is free/open source so if they did need "CF" you could install that

good idea. FBML is only for FB right? On a "regular" html web page how would I code it?

ok, got it. so you would just do something like this:

<iframe src="http://www.mysite.com/myproject.cfm" width="80%" height="110"> </iframe>

yes fbml is like bbml  (if you're old enough to remember that :)

<iframe src="http://www.yersite.com/ scrolling="yes/no" frameborder="0" style="whatever" allowTransparency="true/false"></iframe>

(no points ...)

Yep, they can be disabled.  They could simply link to a page on your site instead. But I assume that's not what you're going for ...

Yes there are ways to block iframes (noscript for FF is one)

There are also cross domain security restrictions built into browsers so what's in your iframe can't (theoretically) interact with the framing page if they aren't in the same domain. (although they can be and frequently are  used for evil purposes)

You need to assume there can be no interaction between the "host" site and your app

so as a workaround for disabled you could do something like this:

<iframe src="http://www.yersite.com/ scrolling="yes/no" frameborder="0" style="whatever" allowTransparency="true/false">
It looks like your browser does not supoort iframes.
 That's ok...take our new survey <a href="www.mysite.com/test.cfm">here</a>
</iframe>

>>You need to assume there can be no interaction between the "host" site and your app

would I be at least able to capture the browser's url to see where it was being used?

if you mean tracking from your client (ie: 200 hits from client a 230 from client b) then yes you'd just need to mod the bit of code you provide to your client to include a url param<iframe src="http://www.yersite.com/index.cfm?client=a"> and read the url var and store it or whatever
