Scrolling iframes

Hi guys,
I don't want to use iframes, but it is really the principle that I am going with. I want to have a frame with another website in and basically show a pre-determined part of that page (via scrolling). I have been trying all night to get a simple script going and I was wondering what I am doing wrong. Here is my code:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <script type="text/javascript">
  2.     function scroller() {
  3.         document.getElementById('myiframe').scroll(100,0);
  4.     }
  5. </script>
  6. <body onload="scroller()">
  7.     <iframe id="myiframe" scrolling="yes" height="500px" width="1000px" src=""></iframe>
  8. </body>

in case the page that is loaded into the iframe is not from your domain you cannot control it by a script due to the XSS (cross-site-scripting) security restrictions ... have a look here
