<embed> not quite what I was hoping for...

by vmars316 / October 6, 2012 11:00 AM PDT

I want to display a .txt file dynamically (everytime .html is loaded, I want the (current) .txt to be loaded).
I am using <embed> (see below),
But browser jams everything into a tiny scrollBarBOX .
How can I enLarge the BOX.
Or get rid of the BOX altogether.

Include an external file inside of HTML
by vmars316 / October 7, 2012 4:41 AM PDT
In reply to: Re: include text file

I am trying to Include an external file inside of HTML that will work as crossBrowser:

I have come up with three methods of coding it, but only Chrome works for all 3 methods.
Anyone know of different ways to do this ?
Thanks...Vernon


Including an external file inside of HTML:

In the 3 methods below ,

for GoogleChrome, all Methods(1,2,3) work ,
and all methods show search results.

For InternetExplorer, all Methods(1,2,3) show something ,
BUT ONLY 'Method 2' shows search results.


<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">
<html><head>
<meta content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1" http-equiv="content-type"><title>Minimalist Html Code</title>

</head><body>
<br><br>
Method 1
<br>
<embed src="C:\Users\vm\Desktop\myPrograms\~PortableFreeware.com\AkelPad\~~~Scratch.txt">
<br>
<br><br>
Method 2
<iframe src="C:\Users\vm\Desktop\myPrograms\~PortableFreeware.com\AkelPad\~~~Scratch.txt" width="800" height="800">
<a href="C:\Users\vm\Desktop\myPrograms\~PortableFreeware.com\AkelPad\~~~Scratch.txt">Hmm, you are using a very old browser.
Click here to go directly to included content.</a>
</iframe>
<br>
<br><br>
Method 3
<object width="800" height="800" data="C:\Users\vm\Desktop\myPrograms\~PortableFreeware.com\AkelPad\~~~Scratch.txt"></object>

When dealing with Microsoft stuff I steer clear of filenames that contain non-Alphanumerics. Also for web work I stick to all lower case.

I know that many folk will write this should work but then again I don't have to do as many bug hunts as other folk.

With that out of the way, you know that HTML browsers CACHE content. You'll have to deal with that. I won't write about such as setting the expiry is just a little setting or code. Your choice.

Yes, that sounds right.

I am not sure what you mean here, other than I often click on ReLoad Button.

setting the expiry
