Well you have insertRow and insertCell or createElement and appendChild

Loop through the responseXML and use those things I mentioned above.

If you a new and are just practicing, then it would be a lot better if you could change your server side code to return formatted HTML which you could just directly use - with something like document.getelementById("myDiv").innerHTML = response.text().

You might also consider starting with a java script library like Jquery which would save you a lot of hassle which browser compatibility issues.

DWR is interesting, but it imposes a whole different way of working than anyone is used to in JavaScript. I'd not recommend adopting it just for Ajax usage.
