    I am working on a website for a company that needs to pull some of their html from their corporate site and have it display inline.

    I am thinking of using IFRAME's to do this, but I am concerned about the % of users that it won't display properly for due to their browser choice.

    I know that it works on the newer Netscape and IE browsers, but not the older Netscape browsers. I have read it works on IE 3 and up.

    Does anyone know what the current % of late 4. Netscape users and less happens to be?

    Does anyone have any suggestions of any other way to do this? Full blown frames will not work well with the site design, so I am trying to avoid that at all costs.

    Perhaps SSI will help you? Since it's executed on server it's browser independent. See
    http://bignosebird.com/ssi.shtml

    If you can't do it with SSI I wouldn't worry about that % of users too much. According to my stats less then 1% people are using browsers who don't support <IFRAME>.

    Hey Michelle,

    You could use a simple PHP tag to do this. If you have PHP, try this:

    <?php
    $remote = fopen("http://yourotherdomain.com/filename.html", "r");
    fpassthru($remote);
    ?>

    C4: I don't think you can use SSI to retrieve a document from another domain name. Can you?

    True, I read the article too fast The PHP solution is really the most simple one.

    Hi, ~Michelle,

    On my site less than 1% of my visitors use Netscape 4.x, ~64% use Internet Exploder,
    ~14% use Mozilla, ~7% use Opera with the remainder being Safari, Firefox, and others.
