Can you display content from external URL in table?

Can I define a <td></tdcell so that it will display the content from
some URL (http://yoursite.com)?

Thank you!

Use an HTML 4 iframe:
http://www.w3.org/TR/html401/present/frames.html#h-16.5

OBJECT should work too, but isn't supported correctly by IE.

Anyway, I highly doubt that you need websites as tabular data. Most
likely, you're using tables for layout.
HTML tables should only be used for tabular data. For layout, use CSS.

Put a link in the cell with VERY BRIEF descriptive text. Let the user
follow the link to the other URL.

However, Gillibert is quite correct. Don't use tables merely to format
a page; only use them to present content in tabular form.
