      <script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.1.3/jquery.min.js"></script>
		
      <script>
         $(document).ready(function(){
            var $content = $("iframe").contents();
            $content.find("body").append("I'm in an iframe!");
         });
      </script>

   <body>
      <iframe src="index.htm" width="300" height="100">
