    if you have server somewhere that automatically updates the data you need..you only need to connect to it and parse the XML and display it in your page....but I guess thats what you are haing problems with??? right

    if so give me some more details of it and I shall see to it..
    Cheers

    For that I am pretty sure you will need a server side programming here is why.
    MS has some active x components that you can embed in your javascript and get the xml file via HTTP,however as soon as you ould like to open in using a webserver you will get an access denied error....( I had not found any solution it )therefore you will need to use some sort of server side lang...if you are using this for a local machine or intranet without the use of a web server..then I can help you with that...
    (all of the above is presuming that the feed is being served from another domain/web server)
    Cheers
