I know you just mentioned that you can’t use an iFrame, but I figured I’d share a test i created, in case it offers a new way of approaching the challenge.
The main issue I ran into with using iFrames is the rigid pixel-specified size of the content box (and 100% height not working as expected in FireFox).
-this is almost like a frameset-type thing, but only with more control and flexibility… because the iframe is in a element, it’s not so difficult to then mush it around and do crazy things with it usiing jQuery
here are the qucick tests I messed around with:
Based on the file found at:
and another test
Based on a file purchased at codecanyon
(these examples are still kinda wonky, and would need some refinement for mobile browsers, etc.)
Revolver jQuery Plugin (definitely worth the $4)
Any luck with you mission?
