HTML Question

Load html into div without changing the rest of page

So I've seen tons of people asking how to load html into a div, and my code does that fine....but then the rest of the page changes when I load the html into the div.

I have a page a.html that looks like this, and loads b.html

a.html

<html>
<head>
<script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.9.1.js"></script>
<script>
$(function() {
$("#includedContent").load("b.html");
});
</script>



<div id="includedContent"></div>
<h1>This is why I rule</h1>
</head>
</html>


then b.html looks like this

<p> This is my include file </p>


What happens is a.html loads and I can see
This is why I rule
momentarily, but then the code goes out and gets b.html. When b.html loads I can ONLY see
This is my include file
and the 'This is why I rule' message disappears...

Why is this? How do I prevent it? It does this on all browsers I have tested it on.

Answer

You have to write your html code into a <body> </body>

<html> 
<head> 
<script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.9.1.js"></script> 
<script> 
$(function() {
$("#includedContent").load("b.html"); 
}); 
</script> 
</head>

<body>
 <div id="includedContent"></div>
 <h1>This is why I rule</h1>
</body>
</html>
