use load() method to get the content of a URL into a div, and then you can take it from that div
http://api.jquery.com/load/

also check get() method's success event
http://api.jquery.com/jQuery.get/

Ok this looks promising, as far as you know would this work for external websites outside of my own domain?

Nope, only for the same domain....for external domain, you need to get the content from your server side script
