Despite what the article says, IE4 and IE5 have very flexible ways to automatically update portions of the DOM without reloading the entire document. Take a look at the "databinding" stuff on Microsoft's site.
Microsoft submitted this stuff to the w3c html committe, but it was squashed because Netscape did not have a chance in hell of implementing it at the time.
