There is still no good way to include text in HTML 5

Joseph Shraibman-2

If you want to include text into an html page there has never been a
good way to do it.  Banner ads were first introduced because there was a
wag to include an image with the <IMG> tag but there wasn't a way to
include text.  Today anyone who wants to include text has to either use
javascript or an <iframe> tag.  <iframe> tags are unwieldy because the
text can't be inserted cleanly; it has to be inserted into a new box.

I, for example, want to insert the current Internet Storm Status on a
page, with the source being:  http://isc.sans.org/infocon.txt.  I have
to use an <iframe>, which leaves the inserted text unaligned.
