    Div Tag Question

    JayR182
      Hello. I am trying to set up a site so that when you click different menu buttons the corresponding websites would appear in the page's div tag. For example, if I clicked the Google button, Google.com would appear in the div tag, but they would still be on my site. I was wondering if there was a way to set the source of a div to a website. Something like <div source="google.com"> or something like that. Thanks in advance for your help.

          You would have to use an iframe for that.

          Do a google search for iframe.

            Don't be surprised if this doesn't work very well, though. Pulling a page
            architected for an 800px wide browser viewport into an IFrame that may be
            significantly less than 800px wide is likely to be pretty ugly.

              And you're going to get sued.

                    wait, could you really get sued for displaying someone else's page on your page? If its clearly marked as being an external site you're looking at?

                        Really.

                        Realtor.com has called me several times, although in all cases it was
                        clearly stated where we were pulling the information from.

                        The last time I got a call from them it was because they had started a new
                        site (enter Dell mentality) called TheHomeStore.com (bought 2004) - my
                        client's site was ...very similar, but he has owned since around 1999 -
                        (and please don't think I designed what's currently up there. 8o)

                        Their spiel was that the two domain names were too close, and even though we
                        were stating the material was coming from their site, and the EULA did not
                        specify what we were doing was illegal - they called. (they had called
                        previously about another section before they had this domain name, but did
                        not threaten a suit as harshly as the last time.)

                        I called my client back and told him "I TOLD YOU SO!" LOL.

                        BTW - The page in question had been up two days.
