display external html list item in new page using php?

I am building a web page and, as is becoming increasingly routine for me, I have bitten off more than I can chew. I am even finding it hard to describe what I want to do

mypage.html needs to display (possibly random) items from a list on another website.

In my confused mind, I imagine the process like this (forgive the fake code : I had real problems displaying code on an earlier post )



<li> item one
<li> item two
<li> item three



I want to display <li> item (possibly random) here

The list item display will be part of a page and not the whole page.

FYI : the person who has asked me to build this site does the following. They log on to externalpage.html and add items to the list (a photograph of a house and a description). mypage.html needs to display list items as examples of what is in the list. The full list is available using an iframe on mypage2.html.

When I agreed to help build the site, I thought it was all going to be html. I know to ask questions now

Thanks in advance
