Good day.

  Often browser displays information from database.
Typical operation is viewing of some database's table:
smaller quantity of rows is shown in browser,
bigger quantity of rows was not still inquired from database.
  Let's enter special form, looking as TABLE with knob and slider on right side.
It also would be very comfortable and also economize time and torment
(especially for un-skilled user).
  <table    name="A" action="site.com/dir/script.cgi"  portion="50"></table>
When browser meet this html-element during loading document, it immediately sends
    <_ name="A" cmd="down">
gets and displayes 50 top rows (order of sorting depends of server).
  Server answers to browser by piece of xml-text:
values of attributes will be displayed in browser as content of cells
(if beginning of value is "http://", then browser inquire and display picture);
attributes (and tag) have arbitrary names.
  <a a1="v1_1"  a2="v1_2"  a3="v1_3" >
  <a a1="v2_1"  a2="v2_2"  a3="v2_3" >
  <a a1="v50_1" a2="v50_2" a3="v50_3">

CSS can make some columns non-displayed, e.g.
  a.a2 {
    display: none;
CSS can influence to any other properties of such data, e.g.
  a.a3 {
    property: value;
This does not influence to communication between browser and server.

Summary of all ideas is in
