Another technique is to avoid the XMLHTTP object altogether and pull in the
data by setting the src attribute on the IFRAME via JavaScript.  A nice
benefit to calling the page by setting the src attribute is that any
JavaSrcipt within the frame will execute if wrapped in script blocks.

I'll post an example later on a technique to using IFRAMES that has worked
very well for me.
