How to get text content from another website by javascript in asp.net?

i'm creating a web application in asp.net in which i would like to give user a one JavaScript code, through which the user can get content from my website to his/her own website.

i've used one generic handler to process user request in my website.

so, now How can i do this, i've tried using jQuery..
jQuery can only process requests from current server, not from other server (if i'm not wrong)

code on www.otherwebsite.com
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <script type="text/javascript" src="jquery.x.x.js">
  2. </script>
  3. <script type="text/javascript">
  4. $('#result').load('www.myWebSite.com/getData.ashx');
  5. </script>
  6. <body>
  7. <div id="result">
  9. </div>
  11. </body>
Above code isn't working.. :(

is there any other way to send content from my website to other website??

any help would b greatly appreciated.

you need to build a server side web method[using screen scraping in asp.net] which fetches data from external site and sends it to browser

Its too late to inform you guys that I've achieved it using javascript to generate an <Iframe > on otherwebsite.com and in iframe src I kept mywebsite.com/getData.ashx.

Thanks to all of you who replied to my thread.
