@doc doesn't take a url, it takes literal html code (with quotes
escaped).  It is intended to help with the use of multiple <iframe>s
on a page, especially @sandbox'd ones, so that you don't incur
multiple network requests but still get the security benefits of
framing the content such as blog comments.
