Best option for creating widgets for a webpage

Hi,
I have been asked to create a "widget" for my client and am looking for the most appropriate way to go about and create it.
This widget is fairly simple:
A narrow widget to fit in a webpage side bar.
3 tabs: 2 tabs with links to the main site which would be populated by my clients XML data, 1 with a filter search to point back to the main site
To have a simple method for other website owners to embed the widget into their sites.
Ensure that Google analytics tracking would work for external sites using the widget
As I primarily develop in ASP.net, I thought about using Visual web developer to create small webpage that could be embedded into sites using Iframes. However if the small widget pages are hosted on my server I would think this may cause an issue with analytics.
Also doing further investigation it appears most widgets are created using javascript
So what is the best way to go about it? are there any good examples of creating this and what tools would be best to use?
Your expert advice would be most welcome.

I obviously did not make myself clear, it was more about creating the widget. I would like to delete this and repost a revised version of the question
