I am trying to figure out how to update the contents of a without refreshing the page. I have a script that fires off from a button click, but it would be really nice if the user did not have to refresh the page.

If I know which records have been edited on the table, can I simply select each record (jQuery of course) and make changes to the innerHTML attribute? Would appreciate any generalized technique or example

Is there a reason you don't want the page refreshed?

Currently my script refreshes the page, but that is just a lazy fix. I would love to know the concept behind updating the contents of a page without refreshing. I haven't looked more into this since I posted this last week, mostly because I don't know where to begin or how to really traverse/do useful investigation on the HTML
