First, a suggestion: Not sure if you abbreviated your code, but if
you're interested in backwards compatibility, you should duplicate the
content your iframe content in the iframe tag ... which should be easy
as you're using CF ... ie,

But I can see a few possible causes of the problem you describe:

Are you possibly defining the text color in your iframe doc as #ffffff
but not defining the background color so the iframe's background color
as something else (thus it shows your browser's default of a white

Other possible explanation: that you said "pop.cfm contains:" when your
iframe src is actually "popup.cfm" ... and this is not a typo in your
email, but the actual file name ... which would make the iframe src a
404 error.

OK, Jason's response just came in. My comment on that:

I certainly am not surprised that MS gives example code of:

<BODY  STYLE="background-color:transparent">

Giving them the benefit of the doubt, I suppose they could have omitted
the </p> to make up for bloat elsewhere.
