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,
JS

If you're asking about refreshing select layers in DHTML, then you might try asking in The HTML and JavaScript Forum.
Concerning Applets...
Yes, they can be created to automatically get new information from a server.

Thanks Dirk.
I felt my real name would get gigged first, so I fell back on the Spicolie alias I usually use instead.

Thanks for changing your display name. Note that it's not required that you use your real name. I was bugging you because you forgot a space between the first and last names. One would think I'd have better things to do...

The Nasdaq Market Ticker is a real world example of an Applet that displays automatically updated information.
Take a look at The Applet Power Article at Sun for more examples of using Applets to display changing information.
