    I cannot get external links to load into an IFRAME but files on my server load fine.

    I have horizontal fly out menu in a left div called nav which has an unordered list of items that are links.

    I want all my nav links to open in a main div on the right side. Since its impossible to load directly into the main div from a nav div,

    I decided to use an IFRAME. Why is the behavior of loading local files ex(local.html) on my server not a problem yet

    when I try to load another site such as http://www.google.com it doesn't load? Do I need some magical code via Javascript or Ajax

    to make that happen. I have set up a simple page here with three links. The third google link does not load. I am a novice with Javascript/Ajax/Jquery.


    Thank You

    Have you tried loading any other on line page? As far as I'm aware, Google will not allow you to load in an IFrame.

    try changing:
    <li><a href="http://www.google.com" target="content"> Google </a></li>
    <li><a href="#" onclick="document.getElementById('content').src='http://www.google.com';"> Google </a></li>
    <li><a href="#" onclick="document.getElementById('content').location.href='http://www.google.com';"> Google </a></li>

    Code that is 100% standards compliant is 100% correct 100% of the time... anything else is just a hack
