Create HTML content that gets refreshed, using JSON? Load chunks of
samely structured content on-demand. Sample app I made for bittorrent
when applying for a job: http://dhtmlkitchen.com/tmp/bittorrent/
(waste of time, that was).

For example of content that gets refreshed, a table refresh widget
would update the data in the HTML TABLE by fetchng JSON.

Content that is loaded on-demand but reused in a template could be a
product-info panel or a tooltip. Each panel is tied to an actuator and
is shown with unique data, but it is created from a template that has
essentially the same structure.
