How to load local html / PHP content into an iframe using modal popup? (html5, javascript and/or CSS) ?

Last Modified: 2015-08-25
I need to load a formatted html file (b.html) within a modal popup which is launched from a local html file (a.html)

The content of b.html is formatted to 800px x 600px and I would like to be able to display this content within the modal popup without any scroll bars showing.

I would also like to be able to close the modal by clicking an 'X' on the top right of the modal box and no where else on the modal or background...

Please can you provide any help and ideally detailed examples or instructions on how I can go about doing this using modern methods, if possible.

Many Thanks
