loading javascript

I have a variable top.objA
This top.objA contains the name of one of the many objects I use. This objA has additional information. . I can't load all information about all objects from the beginning, cause I would lose far too much performance. I don't want to use server-side scripting. Now I want to load the additional information by loading a small html-file with javacript to load extra information about objA.

something like
top.someframe.location.href=path+objA+".html"

so I can put all the information in seperate files and only have to load 1 for a specefic object.

So my question is, how can I load a html-file that doesn't become visible, so I can run a small Javascript, whose filename is based on the value of variables in Javascript.

If you do that then simply make the frame in to which the page gets loaded, hidden from the user - one way to do that is to use the following frameset:

<frameset rows="100%,*" frameborder="0">
<frame name="mainFrame" src="whatever.html">
<frame name="hiddenFrame">
</frameset>

then use:

top.hiddenFrame.location = "theobjApage.html";
