How do I redirect to load content into other table column?

How do I load the URL into the other empty table column of id colOne? Right now if you click on the link, it will open the URL as a separate page. (I don’t want to use an iFrame because it is notoriously fickle in Android devices.) Or can it be loaded on top of the page in some way?

<!DOCTYPE html>
function load(url)

<style type="text/css">
table { width: 800px; border: 3px dotted #aaa; }
#colOne, #colTwo { width:50%; }



<td id="colOne">

<td id="colTwo">
<a href=#  onClick="load('listsub.html'); return false;">Show Menu</a>


In your load() function change _blank to _self and it will open the link in the same window.

No, it doesn’t do what I really want, which is to load it in a <td> cell. Somehow I need to load the HTML content into a variable, then show the contents of that variable in the cell, perhaps by inner HTML. However, I don’t know if it’s possible to load external HTML (in an iPhone or Android app) and display it on the HTML page’s cell.
