Thank you for the prompt and courteous reply, Alexey.

I am already using a dynamically-generated iFrame, which does serve the
purpose. I was just hoping to improve and simplify the implementation.

Your response is helpful in that it confirms that what I am trying to do
is not possible at present. So, I will focus on jazzing-up the iFrame
implementation in the interim.

Best regards,
