Using viables in the iframe

I am trying to pass a variable to the Freewheel iframe in order to select the section displayed in a dwfx file with multiple sections.

I have created a .php file with navigation links as follows:

<li><a href="3D_DEV.php?selection=1">section a</a></li>
<li><a href="3D_DEV.php?selection=2">section b</a></li>
<li><a href="3D_DEV.php?selection=3">section c</a></li>
<li><a href="3D_DEV.php?selection=4">section d</a></li>

I set the variable 'selection' as follows:

$selection = $GET['selection'];
echo $selection;

The iframe looks like this:

<iframe scrolling="No" width="600" height="400" src="<%selection%>"> </iframe>

When I include this variable in the iframe it seems to ignore the path and displays the default image, but when I replace the variable with a number it works fine. The echo command shows that the variable is being set properly. What am I doing wrong? Can you offer a better way to do this?

I checked with one of our developers, John Schmier, and he told me that unfortunately we do not support this. This is something that we can consider in a future update.
