I have a webpage that uses an iframe. The iframe links to an external website. Problem is that the iframe content doesn't show in IE8, but it does in both FF and Chrome.


<iframe src ="http://www.example.com/index.asp" width="100%" height="100%" frameborder="0"></iframe>

It works fine if I add the remote domain to my IE trusted zone.

How can I get it to work in IE without having to add the remote domain?

[edit reason] switch to example.com - it cannot be owned [/edit]

hello weblance, and welcome to the forums.

Are you testing this on a server?

Yes both websites are on a server - different ones.

The index.asp file looks like this:

<%Option Explicit%>
<!-- #include File=InitFile.Lib-->
