The new cross-site includes feature lets you include the source of one page into another. We're finding lots of use for this powerful extension to normal includes, which used to work only inside one site. I'm going to show you a simple way of getting a live 'view' of another page.
Here, for example, is a page describing the design of a new feature for embedding HTML directly into a page.

This is a design sketch for embedding HTML into Wikidot pages. The idea is based on the design of an Iframe module by James Kanjo.
We propose a syntax extension:
My example header
My awesome paragraph.
This is a secure sandboxing of the HTML: it cannot access the encapsulating page nor can it use the session's security information.
The code for this is:
[[div style="border: 1px solid grey; padding: 1em; background:white"]]
