Yes but you need create the Javascript on a server. Use PHP (or your
language of choice) to generate Javascript. This is perfectly legal and
avoids all the IFRAME issues for a foreign site.

On the page where you want content:
<div id='ContentDiv'>
<noscript><b>*****WARNING JAVASCRIPT IS DISABLED, IT MUST BE ENABLED TO
PROPERLY VIEW THIS PAGE*****</b></noscript>
....Loading data from Example.Com...
</div>
<script type="text/javascript"
src="http://www.example.com/Script.php"></script>

Script.php runs on your server, generates data or reads another web
site, then formats the result into a Javascript command that updates the
innerHTML of ContentDiv as follows:
document.getElementById('ContentDiv').innerHTML = 'Whatever you want';

you may bump into issues with some characters that cause the generated
Javascipt to fail. Here's how I fixed it (using PHP on server) assuming
the result is in $buffer
$buffer = str_replace("\\", "\\\\", $buffer);
$buffer = str_replace("\r", "\\r", $buffer);
$buffer = str_replace("\n", "\\n", $buffer);
$buffer = str_replace("'", "\\'", $buffer);
$buffer = str_replace('"', '\\"', $buffer);
return $buffer;
