Re: Adding files from external site - suggestions?

I have a similar sort of need.  What about dropping
the external page into a frame in one of your pages? 
I don't know how Swish-E handles that situation, but
it's the only thing I can think of short of
manipulating the index file, which I really don't want
to contemplate.
