How to recover text from a web page

Try using the url of the iframe. This will get that HTML only, but  
that could be all you need.

  Most sites will work easily, but some have a security variable that  
is sent along to the iframe url
that signals 'intended use'.

The include should simply add the text of another file to the current  
file, effectively inserting that text at the location of the include.   
The result should be that you will get the HTML without any other steps.
