[thelist] Alternatives to IFrames?

Hey everyone, new to the list here!  I'll quickly intro myself - I'm a web 
designer and developer (officially titled "New Media Producer" at my job) 
from the Chicago area.  My skills are in XHTML, CSS, DOM, and PHP, with a 
little Coldfusion knowledge.  Anyway, to the point...

I've been helping out my company with our new website and a lot of the stuff 
I develop doesn't fit in with the way the standard template is done, so 
they've been putting my pages in as IFrames.  The problem with this is that 
iframes are notoriously shaky, render differently in different browsers 
(Firefox breaks like crazy!), return you to the main page if you reload, and 
also it's an issue getting it to expand like you want.

What are my alternatives?  Right now we're running Coldfusion on the server 
if there's any suggestions involving server-side.
