    Hi there,

    Browsers consider iframes to be separate documents, so to see the source for an iframe you will need to explicitly select that frame.  In firefox that's as easy as right clicking within the frame and selecting

    This Frame >> View Frame Source.

    Similarily in IE you select "View Frame Source" when the frame is highlighted.  Here is a link which may help:
