<iframe src="/files/myfile.htm" frameborder="0"></iframe> is how you would do it ( and remove the border to answer your other previous post). if it isnt working correctly you may need to provide more information and/or markup example

no just a html file so it would be files/File name

ok, than I already answered your question.

if you want to display an html file in an iframe and the file is located at www.mysite.com/myfile.htm then you would use

<iframe src="http://www.mysite.com/myfile.htm"></iframe>

or you would use a relative link like so if the page your iframe is on is already on www.mysite.com

<iframe src="/myfile.htm"></iframe>

src="file:///c:/myfiles/myfile.htm"

what you are referring to would be a "local file". Im guessing you dont have a server installed on your computer or network to test with.

( interested in running a local test server? -- http://portableapps.com/apps/development/xampp )
