Hi,
Wondering if anybody can help with some coding advice here....I think it's a javascript issue but perhaps I need PHP help instead...

I have in a PHP page code in the following form:

<tr>
<td>
<div class="textcontent">
<? include("content/info01.txt"); ?>
</div>
</td>
</tr>

The "info01.txt" file contains html tags including image tags. I want to be able to include links within this text file too, so that when clicked, a different set of content "info02.txt" will appear in place of the original included content. I don't want to load an entire new page though (as this is a client-changeable section and I want to limit the client to changing included text files content only, not the whole html document), so I just want to make some kind of clickable link which will replace the section within the <div> tags above so I can maintain the css of that included content.

Is there some easy way of doing this? I thought perhaps I could give the <td> an identifier (say "includearea") and within the included text file use an onClick statement to load the new content, something like
onClick="document.includearea.something=newcontent"
but can't work out how to code this.... what is the "something" and how could I define "newcontent"?

I'm stuck. Any suggestions would be most appreciated.

Thanks in advance...

Found the answer elsewhere -
solution is by loading a hidden iframe with the new content and then copying this content to the cell using the innerHTML property.
