Thank you for the link. I have had a quick look (nice design by the way).

The problem is that PHP, being server-side does not expose the code. I was
hoping for a quick grab of JavaScript code. Also, renaming the page/s,
namely having the html suffix changed to php, will require modification of
internal links, or even worse, external inbound links. Redirections would
be an overkill.

To rephrase my request as you were not sure what I meant, I seek to grab
text from http://example.org/data.txt and then embed it in a <span>, for
instance, in http://example.com/page.html. data.txt gets updated all the
time, hence it needs to be grabbed. If JavaScript was disabled, there would
be no harm either.

Thanks again,
