Is there a way to embed a SharePoint page using the Page Viewer Web Part (or some other method I haven’t thought of) without the Chrome? I want to embed JUST the content within the Page Layout section in the diagram below)? It looks incredibly goofy if I embed a SharePoint page within a SharePoint page as it pulls in all the SharePoint Chrome from the Master Page.

Unfortunately, the PVWP is pretty simplistic, and cannot do something like this. It just displays whatever URL you give it.

An alternative I have used in the past is to put the content ("page layout" from your diagram) into a minimal master page, then include that using PVWP wherever the content is needed. This can get ugly if you have a lot of pages you are including like this, but it works.
