Downloading UI components on demand

Hello Ranchers

I have a UI form consisting of a menu bar along the top and several button components on the page. At the moment, it is possible to display hidden (ie. not rendered) pop-up windows when either menu items or buttons are clicked. All these components get sent to the client during the JSF request processing lifecycle.
What i would like to know is this: in order to reduce network traffic in the case of low bandwidth internet connections, is it possible to suppress sending of the hidden pop-up windows from the server machine to the client machine as long as the user does not request them by making a mouse click?
And if it is possible, what methods could be used?!
Cheers,

Mark Weatherill.
