iframe refresh problem

I have a JSP page composed of two iframes which periodically refreshes at a certain rate. Now I dont want the users of the application to catch some sort of photosensitive seizures due to the continuous flickering of the frames whenever they refresh.

Is there anyway to get rid of the flicker everytime an iframe is refreshed? Is there is no way, could anyone suggest an alternative of some kind? I would appreciate any form of help. Thank you.

There is not way to get rid of the flicker since the page has to "repaint" each time. What are you doing in these iframes that you need to refresh?

Parse values from an xml file using JDOM to get the updates and display it on the page.

Look into the XMLHttpRequest object and see if that makes it any better for you.
