Considering scripting using XmlHttpRequest[1] (or Ajax) is a hot topic,
especially since Google Suggest[2] and GMail[3] make extensive use of
it, theres a definite need for some accessibility guidance. Notably, how
does one update content in an existing page in an accessible manner?
Accessifyforum had a short discussion on techniques and approaches a few
months ago [4]

My impression is that its possible to make dynamic content accessible -
if its user invoked (e.g. clicking on a link). Using internal anchors to
either jump directly to the changed part of the content or perhaps to a
"summary of changes / log" area (which then links to the changed
content) could open up this technology in an accessible manner.
