    Please find an AJAX based solution below which includes a HTML page file content in a div element in another page.

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "">
    <html xmlns="" xml:lang="en" lang="en">
    	<title>An XHTML 1.0 Strict standard template</title>
    	<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
    	<meta http-equiv="Content-Style-Type" content="text/css" />
    	<style type="text/css">
    	<script type="text/javascript">
    	function ajaxFunction(id, url){
    		var xmlHttp;
    		try {// Firefox, Opera 8.0+, Safari
    			xmlHttp = new XMLHttpRequest();		
    		} catch (e) {// Internet Explorer
    			try {
    				xmlHttp = new ActiveXObject("Msxml2.XMLHTTP");
    			} catch (e) {
    				try {
    					xmlHttp = new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP");
    				} catch (e) {
    					alert("Your browser does not support AJAX!");
    					return false;
    		xmlHttp.onreadystatechange = function(){
    			if (xmlHttp.readyState == 4) {
    				//Get the response from the server and extract the section that comes in the body section of the second html page avoid inserting the header part of the second page in your first page's element
    				var respText = xmlHttp.responseText.split('<body>');
    				elem.innerHTML = respText[1].split('</body>')[0];
    		var elem = document.getElementById(id);
    		if (!elem) {
    			alert('The element with the passed ID doesn\'t exists in your page');
  "GET", url, true);
    	<div id="test"></div>
    		<input type="button" value="Make Ajax Call" id="ajax" onclick="ajaxFunction('test','one.htm');"/>
    You can use the code in your case but with your element ID and page name.

    Note that in this demo page my assumption is that you just want to load some HTML page content. Thats why I've extracted only those items that falls within its body section. If the body section needs any script file inclusion then you have to change the extraction section according to your needs.

    Hope this help

    Your code work very well for me but my script doesn't work anymore... i need help!

    This is an old thread, and that question is rather vague. And I'm not sure if codeexploiter is still around or not.

    So I'm closing this thread.

    Feel free to start a new thread, you can even link back to this one if you like. But please include a link to your page so we can check it out, and explain what your code did before that it is no longer doing.

    If you want more help, please include a link to the page on your site that contains the problematic code so we can check it out.
