Why not just use a hidden iframe as a target, and then pull the html out and stuff it into a div in the main page? Just a thought...

But at the moment I can't think of a better way. Iframes don't, of course, inherit the CSS applied to the parent document. I've tried quite a few ways of applying a given bit of CSS to the <iframe> contents, but to no damn avail yet. So, two questions: 1. Is there a reliable away of 'forcing' CSS on content contained in an iframe? 2. Better still, is there an alternative to <iframe> that I'm not thinking of? The main advantage of <iframe> is that it can be the target for the output of forms, which I don't believe an <object> can be... but maybe I'm forgetting something here, an approach better than <iframe>? -- Brent Eades Almonte, Ontario http://almonte.com -- * * Please support the community that supports you. * * http://evolt.org/help_support_evolt/ For unsubscribe and other options, including the Tip Harvester and archives of thelist go to: http://lists.evolt.org Workers of the Web, evolt !
