Sounds like the HTML 4.0 IFRAME element.  AFAIK, IE 4.x and 5.x
implement this, but no version of Netscape does yet.  (Maybe
Mozilla, I don't know.)

You can see such a thing at , which transcludes
Tim Bray's intro to RDF.  If your browser doesn't grok IFRAME,
you get a "Wouldn't it be nice if I could transclude here" message.
