HTML srcdoc Attribute

Definition and Usage

The srcdoc attribute specifies the HTML content of the page to show in the inline frame.

Tip: This attribute is expected to be used together with the sandbox and seamless attributes.

If a browser supports the srcdoc attribute, it will override the content specified in the src attribute (if present).

If a browser does NOT support the srcdoc attribute, it will show the file specified in the src attribute instead (if present).
