iframe and anchors
Embedding part of another site

Hi there, I am new to this forum, and am not great with code, so I appologise in advance for my ignorance.

I am doing a site for a UK office of a company in Hong Kong. Communicating with the people who set up the HK site is proving difficult so I was hoping someone here might be able to help me.

There are some tables on the HK site that I would like to embed on the UK site.

Can I do this using an iframe to an anchor on their site? Will this show just the table or the entire page, (I only want the table).

At the moment the tables don't have anchor tags. So before I ask them to put them on, I'd like to know if this will work or if there is a better way to do it.

Thanks

Hello, and welcome to the forums.

Yes, if you can get them to place anchors (page fragment identifiers) on their page that is a possibility - it's kind of "down and dirty" but possible. I'd suggest you experiment by taking your own local copy of their source code first. Depending on their html, browsers may have problems with some scrolling to anchor placements.

The entire page, scrolled to show the table.
