    Hello everybody,

    I have an HTML document with an IFRAME that points to an external
    website, for our purposes I will describe this site best as a news site
    (ex: news.google.com). My document's function is to automatically
    reload the IFRAME at the bottom with the specified URL at a pre-defined
    interval. That function works great.

    Problem is, I would like to have a function included that checks to see
    if anything has been added or changed to the page loaded in the IFRAME
    (ex: a new story comes out and news.google.com's page updates). I am
    aware that both sites are hosted on different domains and I can't
    control the content in the IFRAME. But does anybody know of a way I
    can check the file size or some other attribute of the contents of the
    IFRAME that would hint that the page loaded within it has changed?

    Thanks everybody,
    -Gary

    Look at innerhtml

    Disclaimer: It won't work all the time.
