I am just planning a home page, and I did hit a problem. There are many class in the page, and I'm using AJAX for one of them to send / recieve informations from the server in every seconds.

The main reason is for using a different div for this, I don't want to refresh the whole home page, because it would be unuseable.

What I want to do with this div, when there is a little changing in the database, I want to reload the whole homepage automatically, to let that handle the changing, but I cannot control this from that div.

I tried the javascript method refresh(), and also I tried the HTML refresh meta-tag, without any fortune (the html tag worked only in chrome, but not in firefox)

I want to ask about is there any way to the page to reload when it changes (because ajax that div in the page is always changing)?
