Refresh a single layer?

Is it possible to refresh just a layer on a web page as opposed to refreshing the entire page? Maybe an applet or something. If so, got an example?
Thanks in advance!

How about if it's ie specific... Could one use the IFrame tag and call it to refresh from a meta tag? Any examples?
