About blank iframe not running embedded javascript called from XHR

We have developed some Javascript that gets some content from a website using XHR and then writes to a new document (about:blank) within an iframe.

If the page contains embedded Javascript it’s not executed – it is not executed if its “in line” but it can execute if it’s called from a downloaded include.

In addition even though we set the base ref tag the “onpage “ links ie do not work and are interpreted as being on a different page (which is then attempted to be loaded).

Our app is designed to run on HTML5 as such an HTML 5 only solution would work for us

iframe comply to the same origin policy, hence it must load all necessary javascript itself
or your page in the iframe needs explicitely set the domain attribute to its parent (which works in some browsers)
